"The poems are the work of a profoundly serious temperament and a professional translator of world into word"– Michael Salcman, Judge, Harriss Poetry Prize

Olsen, they were performed by the McDonogh School mixed choir, conducted by Philip A. Olsen. Subsequently the works were performed in Peru, Spain and Portugal.
