Mixed choir a cappella & reciter

When creating a choral composition, we have the ability to re-focus the lens on the lyrics, highlighting certain words, phrases, or feelings, and neglecting others. In this piece, I wanted to keep the written text, as personal as possible. Laura Kasischke’s poetry is written in an almost “diary-type” way, and I wanted to keep that private, intimate feeling. To me the piece is about giving thanks to the ordinary, and the normalities that is life. Small things that happen to us all. Too short to remember to be appreciative about.
