Programme Note
Mark Adamo Here (for baritone and piano) (2012)
Text:
Marcus Argentarius (1st Century C.E.), translated by Brooks Haxton

Here

Dead forever, under your little plot,
away from living things and sunlight,
may you find transcendent timelessness.
But here your wineglass holds red wine.
Here, under your arm, the shoulders of your wife are beautiful,
   alive again with laughter.
Maybe the mind somewhere transcends the grave.
Here, the great philosophers lie in a heap of skulls.
