From Dusk to Dawn tells the story of the Liberian women protesting the civil war which engulfed theircountry until 2003. The musical language for this choral setting is rhythmic, energetic and powerful. The voices sing, "Gather, gather," in repeated 8th notes, as the calls for protest gain in strength. Tremolo chords in the accompaniment bring increased energy. The final section is emphatic, with accented chords in the voices and piano to express "Mighty women!".
