Inspired by a walk among the tombstones of The Old Burying Ground in Jaffrey, New Hampshire, this orchestral song cycle weaves together epitaphs from two historic cemeteries with compelling new poems by Irish and American poets. Featuring the GRAMMY Award winning University of Michigan Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Kenneth Kiesler, this  album has guest performances by folksinger, Tim Eriksen, soprano, Anne-Carolyn Bird, and tenor, Nicholas Phan.

"While cemeteries carry remnants of profound human suffering, they are also places of great peace. For me, they provide an ideal place for a meditation upon how lives appear and disappear in the world." -Evan Chambers, composer
