Program Notes

Text by Emily Brontë. 

Premiere: February 2000 at Kilbourne     Hall, Eastman School of Music (Rochester, New York). Nicole Cabell, soprano; Janelle Fung, piano.

This work is a short and austere setting of a poetic fragment by Emily Brontë. I was particularly interested in her description of light breaking monotone gray.
