Dominick DiOrio has chosen the vivid and striking poetry of Amy Lowell for this powerful work. Lowell's poetry explores the awakening of one's passions by the arrival of a before-absent lover. DiOrio paints this internal exultation with glissandi in the voices, richly-harmonized chords and high chromatic ululations of a solo Soprano. This was the first prize winner of the Cerddorion Vocal Ensemble's Emerging Composer's Competition. Duration: ca. 3 minutes 30 seconds.
