Lost Jewelry
for mezzo-soprano and piano

Lost Jewelry is a setting for mezzo-soprano and piano of Hilda Raz's poem of the same name. In my setting I have tried in various ways to dramatize the poem's remembrance of a lifetime's worth of losses and the consolations that accompany them in the memory.
