Item Number: S0.234571

This 2017 composition is timely without being political, showcasing the three unique choral-orchestral voices of SATB choir, flute, and string orchestra.  8 minutes in duration.  Also available in solo voicing of mezzo-soprano, flute, and string orchestra.

The composer writes: "Though the choice of text for this piece was initially motivated by the political situation in the USA in 2016-2017, this piece quickly became personal for me when one of my children became seriously ill. What had began as a question to my country--"Where do the fragile ones among us belong?"-- became a personal meditation on the nurturing of life itself."

Commissioned by Kirk Smith for Orchestra Unlimited and the Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra for release on "American Expressions" CD on the Centaur Record label, TBA 2017, in mezzo-soprano voicing.
