About the piece
In the firelight was commissioned by the East Carolina University American Choral Directors Association chapter for the 2013-2014 season of the ECU Chamber Singers. They premiered the piece on April 29, 2014 in Greenville, NC, with Dr. Andrew Crane conducting.
I conceived of the piece as a warm, lush reading of a very romantic poem about the desire to return to the simplicity of our youth and the comforts of home.
Octavos are available for purchase from the composer for $2.25 a copy. Please contact me to order!
