Hats Off! to Terri Kirby Erickson whose award-winning poem, "Angels of Death," from her forthcoming collection, A Lake of Light and Clouds, (which will be published by Press 53 in April), has been set to music by composer and Vice President of Education for the New York Philharmonic, Theodore Wiprud, as part of a cycle for soprano, on varied poems of life, death, and nature. Wiprud refers to the poem as, "a humorous take on mortality that sneaks up on you," from a book of poems that "opens from the everyday onto the profound."
