On New Year’s Day I finished a piece that I began last September; a lullaby for my daughter. Commissioned by the Seen/Heard Trio, it’s scored for Mezzo-soprano, flute, and harp, andtitled Child Of The Sun, and features a poem written by my wife, Tri’ah.
This piece is a love note, in the purest sense, to our daughter Vedavearre; it’s our welcoming-into-the world to her. It’s also first extended foray into writing for voice and harp, so it was a new and exciting frontier for me. I’m very pleased with the results thus far, though no doubt there will be a lot of refinement as I work with the ensemble once I get the finalized score sent to them (I’m still getting it copied into Finale.)
I’ll be sharing more news about the new trio as it progresses!
