Two ideas are expressed in this composition: the ongoing history of mothers losing their children and the consequent suffering that results from this unnatural fact of life.  The music combines plaintive melodies with whispers, dense harmonies and clusters, all organized in a triptych structure.  To this, a choreographic element is added which is reminiscent of an ancient Greek chorus.
