The composition consists of five independent songs, so they don't really form a cycle..
Written for Trio Ibert, Jan Erik van Regteren Altena (violin), Eduard van Regteren Altena (cello) en Ernestine Stoop (harp) with soprano Irene Maessen.
Première: 9 January 2001, in Podium Gigant, Apeldoorn by Trio Ibert en Irene Maessen.

Currently working on a work for saxophone quartet, requested by the Bron Saxophone Quartet.
My latest work is "Ritual text for the afterlife" for women's choir and tubular bells.
Ancient Greek goldplates with texts - recently found in graves - that were carried by the dead on their journey to afterlife.
In progress is a work of a much bigger scale: Blodeuwedd, a dance poem for narrator, singer/reciter, dancer and ensemble. The poem is by the Welsh poet Tony Conran.
Another recent work (2016) is
O me! O life! (Walt Whitman) for choir and string quintet.
