Misc. Comments

This piece is dedicated to the victims of the 2011 tsunami, and to their surviving relatives. The text is 5 short tanka poems from the 13th-century “Ogura Hyakunin Isshu”. The first two poems were selected because they serve as metaphors for the disaster, and the last three poems were selected because they serve as metaphors for the summer Obon festival observances that may provide a measure of healing for some. English translations (based on those of Clay MacCauley, 1917) are provided, and the piece may be sung in either Japanese or English. (Currently, the Japanese is represented by western Romaji characters.)
