An Art Song setting of Bravig Imbs's poem "Sleep - 3".
This song was composed by Christopher Ludwig, and performed by Baritone Cliff Ridley and pianist Tatiana Khvatova.
slowly the ponderous doors of lead imponderous
lowered above my head in absolute slow closing
quiet as a shadow on a dim green wall
I rested in my dark and ivory vault
the violins were no more nor eyes nor arms
hours on hours
