Harris’s List of Covent Garden Ladies is a song cycle for voice and guitar by Spanish composer and conductor Oscar Colomina i Bosch.  Winner of the Barbican/GSMD Creative Learning Lab (2011), it is based on an 18th century listing of London prostitutes, tapes from the Berlusconi/D’Addario case and the diary of a female pimp in Barcelona.  In addition to original songs for voice and guitar, the cycle incorporates Mozart Lieder, guitar solos and contemporary texts to form a one hour performance piece.
