The Rivered Earth contains four libretti written by Vikram Seth to
be set to music by Alec Roth - together with an account of the
pleasures and pains of working with a composer.Entitled 'Songs in
Time of War', 'Shared Ground', 'The Traveller' and 'Seven
Elements', they take us all over the world - from Chinese and
Indian poetry to the beauty and quietness of the Salisbury house
where the poet George Herbert lived and died.Spanning centuries of
creativity and humanity, these poems pulse with life, energy and
inspired brilliance.They are accompanied by four pieces of
calligraphy by the author.
