Shine, a choral commission from the University of Pittsburgh-Greensburg and Christopher Bartley, director of the Chorale, and Elliot Sheedy, director of the film in which it will appear. The work uses the fragments of melody from the Song of Seikolos as a foundation. I used an amalgam of translations and then wrote additional text myself for the work. It is scored for SSAATB choir, piano, and cello. The premiere featured the ensemble performing while the film played on a screen in the hall.
