Calling All Dawns by Christopher Tin. Choir Secular. SATB choir. Choral Octavo. Christopher Tin Choral Series. 60 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.39210).
Calling All Dawns is a song-cycle in three movements: day, night and dawn. Each movement corresponds to a different phase of life. Life, death, and rebirth. In short, it's 5 songs about life, 3 songs about death, and 4 songs about rebirth. There are songs of joy, mystery, and hardship, reflecting the complexity of our mortality. There are songs of the deepest, darkest sorrow to accompany us through death. And finally, there are songs of triumph and exultation that bring us roaring back to life, beginning the cycle anew.
