"Vivamus mea Lesbia" is the second movement of Carmina Catulli by Michael Linton. Here the poet breathlessly tells his beloved of his passion for her, giving her nights of thousands of kisses, so many that those who wish them ill are lost in the counting.
"Carmina Catulli" had its world premiere at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall March 3, 2014. CDs and digital copies of this work will be available to purchase in June 2014. For more information about this piece and to hear other works by Michael Linton, please visit Refinersfire.us.
