Seeds of Hope

for Soprano, Clarinet, Violin, Cello, and Piano

This piece was a collaboration with soprano, Rebecca Roose.  We had worked together previously on some of my other pieces and so when she approached me about writing something specifically for her I was more than happy to oblige.  The text for this piece is a combination of excerpts from a poem Rebecca wrote and Psalm 121.  We both wanted to create a piece that spoke to all the tragedy around us in the world, but rather than create something tragic we wanted a piece that was about finding hope and light out of darkness.
