about

3 years after commissioning my work “Prometheus”, Eric Hannan Director of the Vancouver Cantata Singers asked if I would be interested writing another piece to add to the series. Without hesitation I said yes, but this time I wanted to write a work for a villain. Medusa was the result.

The piece should have a strong sense of rage from beginning to end. Why is it always so fun to write music for the villains?

lyrics

Let your heroes come to die,

Dawn or dusk or mid of night.

Let them come to feel my bite,

Let them come to fight or fly,

Let your heroes come to die!

Let your heroes roll the dice,

Or meet their end to be precise.

Let heroes invade my home,

By the hundreds and alone.

Hush now heroes don’t you cry,

Tears of stone never dry.

Let them come to fight or fly,

Let your heroes come to die!

They come from every city and town,

From miles and miles around.

They come from every town and city,

No mortal man can slay this beauty.

Don’t you think me beautiful?

Let your heroes come to die,

Dawn or dusk or mid of night.

Let them come to feel my bite,

Let them come to fight or fly,

Let your heroes come to die!
