Ruth Lomon’s compositions include orchestral, chamber, vocal, and solo works as well as multi-media works. She has been awarded commissions and grants from the Massachusetts Council on the Arts, New England Foundation for the Arts, The New Mexico Arts Division, National Endowment for the Arts, the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation, residencies at Yaddo, and Norlin/MacDowell fellowships. Since 1998 Lomon has been composer and resident scholar at the Women’s Studies Research Center, Brandeis University.

Songs of Remembrance was composed while Lomon was a fellow of the Bunting Institute, Radcliffe/Harvard in 1995-6. Songs was premiered at the John Knowles Paine Concert Hall, Harvard University, and has since had numerous performances including those at the USA National Holocaust Museum, Washington, D.C., in 1998, and the IAWM Congress in London, England, in 1999, where Lomon received the Miriam Gideon Composition award for the work.

Born in 1930 in Montreal, Canada, Lomon attended the Conservatoire de Québec and McGill University. She continued her composition studies with Frances Judd Cooke at the New England Conservatory of Music and, later, with Witold Lutoslawski at Dartington College, England. Lomon spends much of her composing time in New Mexico, where her interest in Native American ceremonials has been a catalyst for some of her major compositions.
