Feb 16, 2008, Milwaukee, WI
Commissioned by the Milwaukee Choral Artists
in honor of their 10th Anniversary
Set to a picturesque, thought provoking
text by Colette Inez, the plaintive melody is joined by an
artistic, colorful piano accompaniment. An unusual,
beautiful piece for women.
Complete perusal score available upon request.
Ev'ry day our name is chang'd,
Say stones colliding into waves.
Go read our names on the shore,
Say waves colliding into stones.
Birds o'er water call their names
To each other again and again
To say where they are.
Where have you been, my small bird?
I know our names will change one day
To stones in a field of anemones and lavender>
Before you reach the farthest wave,
Before our shadows disappear in a starry
Call out your name to say where we are.
