A Lament

for SSA Voices with Piano

Meredith Tompkins (composer)


  • Soprano 1
  • Soprano 2
  • Alto
  • Piano


Soothing and soulful, A Lament is based on a solo of the same title and speaks in a vivid and descriptive language of a lullaby that is also a permanent goodbye. As a reflection of his heritage (Indian) and history, the music blends elements of traditional Western harmony with characteristics of Indian raga and the technique of kan-swar (grace notes or a small quantity of a note). Also available for Treble solo (BLB023).
