Description "A Soldierís Passage" by David De Lyser was written in 2003. It is scored for Baritone Voice, Viola and Piano. This song cycle for Baritone voice, Viola, and Piano consists of four unrelated Emily Dickinson poems that have been woven together to form a loose narrative about the futile death and subsequent events of an unidentified soldier. The music depicts the agitation and irony of his death (Triumphant), the confusion and mysteriousness of his subsequent journey (Void, XXXIV), and the sadness of his neglected grave site (The Forgotten Grave).
