From the Pittance Chamber Music Website:
“A Pittance/ Denizens of underworld/A cavern for a stage/Invisible to all but those Who peer into the cage/ And point and stare and wonder how/We fell into the trap/Of playing in an opera pit/Until they start to clap.
For then they rise for diva’s bow/ To see us there below. And now the truth is obvious/ Without us there’s no show/ Compared to grossest salaries/ A pittance is our fee/ But pit is where we make great art/ Where inspiration’s free.
