Program Notes

Praise was inspired by a William Carlos Williams poem of the same name. The poem includes evocative phrases “dusk-wood fastnesses”, a “crisp splintering leaf-tread”, and “rivers strewn with stones”, creating a set of vivid nature vignettes. This music represents an attempt to capture some of the distinct imagery and sensual sounds of that text. The composition exists in two forms: one for Pierrot Ensemble and one for the flute, oboe, violin, cello, mandolin, and guitar(the instrumentation of the Cygnus Ensemble for whom the piece was originally written).
