"Love Songs" for Soprano and Oboe

This work was just performed during the International Double Reed Society Conference at NYU in August 2014.

Love Songs for soprano and oboe was commissioned by oboist Aryn Day Sweeney.  The texts - translations of Native American words - I chose to tell a story of the Native American woman – a story that she might tell to her child while she rocked the child to sleep. It is a story that I feel can be universally understood, but points to the strength of not only the Native American woman, but to the strength of all women to persevere, to raise children and to keep community strong against all odds.  It is a “love song” in that it goes beyond just romantic love, but tells of love for a child and love of the land.  

This work was premiered at Ball State University by Aryn Day Sweeney-oboe and Yoko Shimazaki-Kilburn-soprano in March 2014.

The Peace of Wild Things for SATB a cappella

The Peace of Wild Things for SATB a cappella with text by Wendell Berry tells of finding solace in the natural world when life becomes complicated and worrisome.  

Commissioned by the Brandywine Singers of Pennsylvania under the direction of Jonatahn Kreamer for their 20th Anniversary, this work reflects on the majesty of nature and what it can offer us in troubled times.
