    My first published piece by Mel Bay that was part of a now out of print compilation called "New Music For Classical Guitar", Acheron is a character piece that takes it's inspiration from "Dante's Inferno"....

    Then looking onward I made out a throng
    Assembled on the beach of a wide river,
    Whereupon I turned to him: "Master, I long
    To know what souls these are, and what strange usage
    Makes them as eager to cross as they seem to be
    In this infected light." At which the Sage:
    "All this shall be made known to you when we stand
    On the joyless beach of Acheron."
    (Dante: Inferno Canto III)
