A Flame in the Embers
Contrasting images of dark and light abound in this piece, which brings Canadian poet Marjorie Pickthall's words vividly to life. The composer's early interest in film score composition is evident in the rich text painting, the varied textures, and the wide dramatic arc of this colourful, challenging composition.
This piece is included on Chronos Vocal Ensemble's CD FRESH.
