Stoke Fleming is a small hamlet on the English Channel. The text for this work is a secular meditation on the rocks and the waves written by the composer during a weekend stay there in 1978. The music was completed in January 2000 and received a reading by the Gregg Smith Singers at the Adirondack Festival of American Music in July 2000. Duration ca. 3:30. A "Back to School 2015" feature. Gonçalo Lourenço conducted the Chamber Singers of the College-Conservatory of Music in the world premiere performance of Stoke Fleming on March 11, 2010, in the Werner Recital Hall at the Corbett Center for the Performing Arts in Cincinnati, Ohio.The recording heard here was made by Matthew Curtis of Choraltracks.Stoke FlemingYou rugged stoneI am the crashing wave upon youCaressing your bold formI am the motion which surrounds youwhile you hold firmI roll upon you wash you and recoilYou accept my touch and watch me goNoI'm that crest therePounding myself on the open beachSpreading over the sandI run out from my salty keepBut fall back in againI fall away from land away from airI will sink out in and lose myselfThere.
