Description
The Secret Exit is a song cycle for soprano and Bb clarinet, commissioned by The University of Alabama at Birmingham for soprano Kristine Hurst-Wajszczuk and clarinetist Denise Gainey.

Kristine had approached me about composing a “sequel” for my Holocaust-themed song cycle I Never Saw Another Butterfly. She was particularly interested in the poetry of Nelly Sachs, a German Jewish poet who escaped the Nazis by fleeing to Sweden in 1940. Sachs became widely known for her poems about the Holocaust, and in 1966, she was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.
