D’s Lament – Hybrid Song after Purcell
for countertenor (or soprano) and ensemble
From the ReCoding Cloud cycle

The basso ostinatos from Purcell’s air When I am laid in earth (Dido's Lament, 1689), from Led Zeppelin’s Dazed and Confused (1969) and from Bach’s Crucifixus (Mass in B minor, 1724-49) share many similarities.

D’s Lament is a hybrid musical organism obtained by “genetically crossing” these three sources.

The text to be sung also derives from multiple sources, but it is primarily a tribute to the beautiful and deep poetry in Donald Trump’s tweets. The material is so abundant and constantly evolving that it is difficult to establish and settle on a final text. Additional lyrics, that are progressively communicated, may be used during performances.
