The Last Words series

We are delighted to announce publication of three very special song cycles
by Timothy Bowers. The last words of famous people, whether real or
invented, exert a strange fascination. Breaking with the tradition that a
song cycle is a setting of poetry, Timothy Bowers has chosen the last words
of fourteen famous (in one case infamous) characters from history and two
comic/ironic epitaphs by Byron as his texts. Each collection provides a
short (c 7’) concert work with settings ranging from fifteen seconds to five
minutes duration.

Book 1 is for Soprano and Piano. Two poets (Gertrude Stein and Emily
Dickenson) followed by two martyrs - St Joan of Arc and Anne Boleyn.


  • Anne Boleyn
  • Emily Dickinson
  • Gertrude Stein
