The most tragic experience in ones life is to loose a loved one. Though the pain of separation is an ever-present challenge to cope with, those precious moments are forever cherished and vividly recalled. When My Mother Sang... is a triptych of gospel hymn settings sang to me as a child. The works are set for voice, clarinet, oboe, violoncello and piano.
