Moon Canticle for solo harp (8 minutes duration) was written for harpist Mario Falcao for premiere at the 42nd National Conference of the American Harp Society. Whether it is a canticle inspired by the moon or a canticle sung by the moon itself, I cannot say. The form could be described as a fantasia of constantly evolving, descending melodic lines that fall like moonbeams upon an enchanted forest of shifting harmonic shadows. Though mysterious at times, the style is Neoromantic, melodic, and accessible for harpists' audiences, in addition to being a great showpiece for the harp. It requires the harpist to gently stroke some metal wind chimes (easy to purchase anywhere) at points in the piece to add to the mysterious effect.
