Rising up with the night
Gliding to meet the moon
But the thought of you, missing me,
sends me back to the earth....

Collaborating with a living poet and contemporary text sometimes pushes me to into unexplored stylistic territories - I think of this one as “Broadway soundscape”.
These art songs were the original inspiration for Searching the Painted Sky, The Opera with story and libretto by J.W. Ryan and music by M. H. Duncan
