The Song of the Shirt

Song

Of Lydia’s early compositions, only The Song of the Shirt for soprano and piano – written in February 1971 when she was fifteen – is still performed today in its original form.  The words, by Thomas Hood (1799 – 1845), depict abject poverty and the cruel exploitation and pitiful existence of the poor.
