The Crossing in Mourning

I spent all day today working on my commission for The Crossing, took a break to look at Arts Journal, and saw the news of the death of Crossing member Jeff Dinsmore. My thoughts and prayers are with all concerned, including my friend Susan Narucki who is to be soloist in the same Andriessen performance with the L.A. Phil that The Crossing is preparing for. A message sent out by The Crossing tonight is here. Members of the ensemble talk about the group in this video.

My piece for The Crossing includes settings of poetry by Denise Levertov, including this passage:

O deep, remote unknown,
O deep unknown,
Have mercy upon us.
