This work for Counter-Tenor, Harp, and Piano began as an adaptation of Alexander Pope's poem "Solitude". After researching his poem, I discovered that Pope rewrote his poem and altered the title to "Ode on Solitude". Though he altered the title and changed a few of the stanzas slightly, the original meaning of the poem remains intact. Pope seems to be content with a life of not being known, but there is an underlying internal torment in his quest for contentment in a life of solitude. The timbre of the counter-tenor combined with the harp and piano bring an ethereal setting to Pope's poem.
