===========

Haunted Lullaby of the Forgotten is a work inspired greatly from my memory of Fiddler on the Roof and was originally written with words to help guide the color, tone, and mood of the piece. The lyrics convey a narrator comforting an unknown character during their final moments, trying to relax their fear of being forgotten before the inevitable. While the hypnotic piece grows and shifts, echoing its sinister and tragic origins, the lullaby eventually closes with the final resting phrase in the violin, “I, the forgotten, will remember you.”
