Endless is a large-scale setting of a libretto that I crafted from the poetry contained in Gitanjali, the 1913 Nobel Prize in Literature winning collection of 'song offerings' by the great Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore. The work was premiered in March, 2017 by the University of Aberdeen Chamber Choir, the Edinburgh Quartet and the University of Aberdeen Percussion Ensemble, conducted by Michael Zaugg of Pro Coro Canada. Endless was the product of three years of research during my PhD studies at the University of Aberdeen; a fitting end to one of the most fruitful and productive periods of my life thus far.
A Child's Requiem was commissioned by the Marquette Symphony Orchestra for the 100th anniversary of the Italian Hall disaster, which occurred in Calumet, MI on Christmas Eve, 1913. It was premiered in December of 2013 by the MSO, the MSHS Redmen Chorale, Lastenkuoro and soprano Renata Kapilevich, conducted by Dr. Matthew Ludwig. The libretto was written by the poet Esther Margaret Ayers, and, in addition to English, features sections in Finnish, Slovenian, Italian, German and Latin. The sixth movement of this work, Lux aeterna, has gone on to be performed as an octavo by choirs around the world.
