Abstract

"This piece was written for an outstanding new boychoir in Oakland, California, the Pacific Boychoir, founded and directed by Kevin Fox. The words (used by written permission) were by Peggy Pond Church, who was best-known for her book THE HOUSE AT OTOWI BRIDGE. She grew up on the beautiful mesas around what is now Los Alamos, New Mexico before her father’s boys’ school was chosen by the government as the site for atomic-weapon research.”

Comments

Review: "Each song is about a minute long, but there's a lot more than one minute's musical value in each one. There is a beautiful flow to the music & an enchanted beauty to it." --Andrew Marr, "Voices of Angels"

Review: "Magically evocative words and music, perfectly complementary, so much so I can't tell which came first, words or music." --Joseph Dillon Ford, The Delian Society
