Based on a Navajo text, “The Sower” is the second movement from Songs of Light. The piece is developed from an opening solo call with the chorus responding with the same chant-like motive extended and developed by the soprano and alto voices. The meter characteristically changes from 4/4 to 3/4 to 2/4 in order to maintain a simple and sustained chant quality in the melody. With optional flute and glockenspiel. Duration: ca. 2:00.
