The first movement of Dinuk Wijeratne’s Two Pop Songs on Antique Poems. This is based on Letter from the Afterlife by Omar Khayyám (c.1048 – c.1122), translated by Edward Fitzgerald (1809 – 1883):

I sent my Soul through the Invisible,
Some letter of that After-life to spell;
And by and by my Soul returned to me,
And answered, “I Myself am Heav’n and Hell”

Recorded on location in the Salmon Arm Arts Centre in Salmon Arm, BC on May 30, 2021 as part of the Kamloops Symphony’s KSO Wellness Lab “Spring Into Summer” series of free digital performances.
