On a Forest Path is the final movement of the composer's larger work, "A Timbered Choir," settings of poems by Wendell Berry. It depicts various scenes that the poet encounters on his walks through the woods, and his reflections upon them. The piano takes on the role of the poet. The text consists of nine brief poems, composed at different times; several of them are only single line in length. The choral episodes are very approachable, with only a few moments of divisi, primarily for the sopranos. This creates a terrific opportunity to focus on color and the beautiful imagery of the poet's words. For more information on the composer's works visit
