Our Waking Souls
SATB Div. w. Piano - duration c. 6'
Hewitt Hill Music
Our Waking Souls was commissioned by the Northern Michigan University Arts Chorale, conducted by Dr. Erin Colwitz, and premiered at the ACDA Michigan Fall Conference in 2018. This festival-appropriate work sets the final two stanzas from John Donne’s 17th Century poem “The Good-Morrow.” Though this poem was originally themed on the subject of romantic love, I feel that the images used by Donne speak to broader themes of unity, tolerance and respect. By making slight alterations to the text, some of which were necessary to modernize the language, I was able to construct a piece that addresses the issues of division that are so prevalent in our world today, and that strives for the hope of a better tomorrow.
