Program notes:
While writing the Nocturne, I was inspired by the summer nights in the Berkshires. The whispering woods, the flickering lights, choirs of insects and the moon reflected over the lake – all found their way to the score in a form of musical impression.  The score calls for twelve singers (with individual parts), soprano saxophone, clarinet, guitar, harp and percussion which are used here less for melodic/harmonic possibilities than as brushes – creating spots, clouds, shadows and beams of sounds. Nocturne was written at the invitation by Tamara Brooks and is dedicated to her. vocal ensemble
