Museday Tuesday

Lachrymose: (adj.) Suggestive of or tending to cause tears; mournful.

My Composition (0:33 MP3)

Other than being a possible substitute for pure sugar, "lachrymose" doesn't immediately present a strong mental picture. The definition seems to infer a maudlin quality over a bawly one. All in all, it seems like a word that might appear in a tenth grade English essay after using the online thesaurus one too many times.

This snippet is written for flugelhorn, alto flutes, and rhythm section.
