Tapestry No. 1

for Clarinet Choir

Tapestry No. 1 is the first in a planned (plan in the loosest sense of the word) series of pieces for various homogenous ensembles.  This piece is based on the idea of layering simple lines of music to create a more complex image much like the process of weaving a tapestry.  The mood of the pieces is inspired by a quote from Faulkner's As I Lay Dying.

"How often I have lain on a strange roof, thinking of home."
