Programme Note
John Harbison Mirabai Songs (1982)
Composer Note:

Mirabai's ecstatic religious poetry was written in 16th-century India. When she was 27, her husband was killed in a war. Mirabai refused to die on her husband's funeral pyre, as was the custom. Instead, she left her family compound, wrote her poems to Krishna, the Dark One, and sang and danced them in the streets.

-- John Harbison
