"Should he avenge her by killing the man who killed her? The music rages until he wonders if perhaps the ghost of his sister would ask for something different: “Would you instead forgive?” The music begins to blossom with new warmth and beauty." —Jake Heggie, Composer 2/2
Songs For Murdered Sisters tackles the questions and thoughts of fury and frustration that come with grief in the second to last song of the cycle—Rage. "The lowest strings of the piano growl as the Wanderer’s own anger and rage grows. Why couldn’t he have saved his sister?" 1/2
"The chords in the piano echo this timeless repetition and the sorrow that surrounds it." —Jake Heggie, Composer 2/2
Songs For Murdered Sisters explores a pattern of toxic masculinity and domestic violence with the sixth song of the cycle—Lost. "The Wanderer contemplates the countless women murdered by angry, jealous, fearful men over thousands of years. Countless lives - countless tears." 1/2

"They are young, with no inkling of what the future will bring. But, then she tells him she has to go and truth once again comes crashing in on him." —Jake Heggie, Composer (2/2)
The fourth song of Songs For Murdered Sisters—Dream— longs for a simpler, happier time, only to be interrupted by an unfortunate reality. "A melancholy, distant tune is suspended in a cloud of delicate harmonies as the Wanderer dreams about his sister." (1/2)

The music swirls and sparkles with imagination and wit, but is ultimately haunted and pulled back to reality." —Jake Heggie, Composer (2/2)
Enchantment—the second song of Songs For Murdered Sisters—explores coming to terms with denial after loss. "Trying to make sense of his sister’s murder, the Wanderer imagines fairytales and fables that could explain her absence: something magical and mysterious..." (1/2)
