The Fire of My Burning f0r Baritone & Piano

David Lewiston Sharpe


Scoring Baritone voice Piano

Duration: 3 mins approx.

Note Words taken from an a ancient Egyptian spell – from a tradition in which magic stood for what was later to become philosophy in other cultures that lay foundations for Western culture; the text is addressed to a series of deities, beginning with Ra, the sungod. The translation is by John L. Foster, to whom the composer is grateful for permission to set these words. DLS
