Stillness

for a cappella SATB chorus (with divisi)

Composed and written for The Calling All Choir while at the Chalk Hill Artist Residency in Healdsburg, California. My first night at the residency I woke up before dawn. The previous evening I was enjoying the sounds of crickets chirping. I expected to hear them that morning, but instead I was met with silence. I listened for a time and realized that the only thing I could hear was my heart beating. I proceeded to write this piece the following day.

    This poignant setting of a poem by Christina Rossetti is dedicated to the memory of Michael Friedman, a dear friend, songwriter, lyricist, and composer, who died too young. The opening two notes (C#-D), at first soft and pensive, lengthen to a three-note motive (C#-D-F#) that is woven into the texture of the six-minute piece, a […]
