Based on a Newfoundland folk song, Passerine refers to "the swallow" found in a lyric of lost love. Carl Strommen gives us a beautiful setting that contains a solo string quartet to begin the work, which contrasts nicely with the entrance of the full ensemble.
Based on a Newfoundland folk song, Passerine refers to "the swallow" found in the lyric of this song of lost love:" She's like a swallow that flies so high, she's like the river that never runs dry, she's like the sunshine on the lee shore. I love my love, and love is no more."Passerine should reflect this sentiment in the ensemble sections as well as the solo passages; broadly and with great expression.
