Dale Trumbore: The Whole Sea In Motion

Books | Choral, SATB

Publisher: G. Schirmer
Composer: Dale Trumbore
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

The Whole Sea In Motion sets a prose text from Agnes Grey, a 1907 novel by the British author Anne Brontë. In choosing this text to set, the composer was struck by the first sentence, which begins "No language can describe [...] the sky and ocean" and then proceeds to do just that, detailing the narrator's experience of the ocean in a vivid, keen language. Within the musical setting of the text, the ocean is represented alternately in the ebbing and flowing of the aleatoric Piano accompaniment and in overlapping melodic lines in the chorus. Duration: ca. 5 min
