Margherita Kalmus, is the soprano soloist. The text for "Penelope's Monologue" is taken from the final 46 lines of James Joyce's "Ulysses". In this section, the conclusion of a lengthy "interior monologue", Molly Bloom recalls the day that Leopold, her husband (the metaphorical Ulysses of Joyce's revolutionary novel), proposed marriage to her.
