Lament for Enkidu

In 2003, I spent most of my summer composing a huge orchestral piece, The Epic of Gilgamesh.  In that orchestral work, I had one section at the end of the third movement where the orchestra accompanied an off-stage male chorus singing the lament for Enkidu, the friend of Gilgamesh.  I was able to take this section and rewrite it for male chorus and Organ.

This recording is from a performance in 2004.
