The Garden of the Silver Pavilion

30.00

The Garden of the Silver Pavilion is a solo in the style of a dramatic monologue for cornet with piano accompaniment. Based on a poem by Tess Gallagher.

Now we are like that flat cone of sand
In the garden of the Silver Pavilion in Kyōto Designed to appear only in moonlight.

Do you want me to mourn?
Do you want me to wear black?

Or like moonlight on whitest sand
To use your dark, to gleam, to shimmer?

I gleam. I mourn.

Tess Gallagher, Moon Crossing Bridge
