Joseph M. Martin - Shawnee Press
"Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there, I do not sleep..." These beloved words of unknown origin are treated lovingly by the composer of this beautiful, deeply emotional piece. The music begins quietly, builds with intensity, and sings into silence with "I am not there. I did not die." A lonely, longing violin melds with an artful piano accompaniment in this exquisite expression of grief and tears, hope and joy. Highly recommended!
