Completed tonight: “I Am” for mixed chorus (ca. 2:20) on the text below.
Do not stand at my grave and weep,

I am not there; I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow,

I am the diamond glints on snow,

I am the sun on ripened grain,

I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning’s hush

I am the swift uplifting rush

Of quiet birds in circling flight.

I am the soft star-shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,

I am not there; I did not die.

—Mary Elizabeth Frye

Pics from last night’s world premiere performance of Naomi’s Lullaby for guitar solo with Aaron Larget-Caplan. It was pouring rain and the program was not spared. The pic with Aaron and me came out well.

My arrangement of Claude Debussy’s song “Beau Soir” (ECS Publishing Group #7689, SATB & piano) has been chosen by the Association of Irish Choirs for their Summer 2017 repertoire. 🙂
