—a cycle of songs for soprano and chamber ensemble, to be performed by Collage New Music. The project is the result of a Fromm Foundation commission. Susan Stewart, whose poetry I have set in three previous pieces, has written new poems specifically for this project, to be called “A Sibyl.”
—a choral setting of an excerpt from the novel “Housekeeping” by Marilynne Robinson.
—a new work for flute, clarinet, violin, cello, and piano, commissioned by Network for New Music, in honor of Linda Reichert’s tenure as Network’s Artistic Director.
—songs for voice and piano on texts by William Blake and Herman Melville.
—a new work for oboe, violin, viola, cello, and piano, commissioned for La Fenice ensemble.
—arrangements of “Be Thou My Vision” and “What Wondrous Love is This?” for voice and piano. Combined with a version of “How Can I Keep From Singing?” from several years ago, these “Three Folk Hymns” are performable as a set or individually.
—settings for soprano and piano of “The Old Astronomer” (on lines from a poem by Sarah Williams), “Who Do You Say That I Am?”, (on a poem by Kathleen Norris), and “Sleeping at Last” (on a poem by Christina Rossetti.)
