Words of the Prophet (2009)

Words of the Prophet for SATB chorus

This choral piece takes its text from portions of The Prophet by Lebanese/American writer Kahlil Gibran.  Focused on the quasi-sacred idea that we are all children of Life, I reduced Gibran's epic story to three main sections:  love, marriage, and children.   Although the work is a single uninterrupted piece, the three divisions are each organized by unique melodic and harmonic structures.
