In Perfect Light (for a cappella SATB chorus, duration 5 mins)
A tranquil reflection on finding solace in death through images of stars in the night sky.
Though my soul will set in darkness,
it will rise in perfect light.
I have loved the stars too fondly
to be fearful of the night.
adapted from The Old Astronomer by Sarah Williams (English, 19th Century)
Commissioned by Los Angeles Opera (as part of the cantata We Look to the Stars), premiered by singers from Pasadena City College and Cal Tech, under conductor Rodger Guerrero.
