North Legend

for mixed choir (SSAATTBB)(text by Hart Crane) (2014) 5'30"

Program Notes: 

North Legend (2014), for mixed voices (SSAATTBB), is a setting of two Hart Crane (1899 - 1932) poems

Legend and North Labrador. Rather than being set in succession, the Crane's poems are presented in an

interwoven fashion. The juxtaposition of these two streams of meaning, allusion, and implication creates

an interesting situation of negotiating the composite narrative and interpreting Crane's work.
