Strange Voices Sing Among the Planets

Research output: Other contributionpeer-review

Abstract

A choral work for for SATB divisi choir and piano. The text is a mysterious and beautiful poem by Christina Rossetti—at times dark andfathomless, and at others energetic, earth-based, and universal in its affirmation of light over darkness, and of the spirit-life out beyond what Rossetti—or any of us—can know. The piano is an integral part of expressing this wonderful text and is intricately woven into the texture of the voices; it can be seen in dual roles as both a dark underpinning to the entire work and at the same time the sparks of light within the implied vast darkness.
