Vocal Music

Just Released!

Multitudinous Stars and Spring Waters for soprano and oboe combines a collection of poems by women poets from a vast period of Chinese history. Their poems make up the larger picture of love and waiting, sometimes with disappointment and grief, of admiration, of marriage and of eternal love. The whole work is a love song – telling that age-old story of the push and pull of emotions that only love can cause.

Duration approximately 16 minutes

Double Reeds

Metamorphosis for two oboes and piano explores starkness, freedom, and a dance of discovery of self as told through the interweaving lines of the oboes. The piano becomes the support that helps guide the changes along the way, ebbing and flowing in its own voice. The flow of the voices continuously strive to emerge and change into something new.

Compostela for solo bassoon work tells the story of the pilgrimage along The Camino Francés.  It is the most popular of the pilgrimage routes through Spain. Premiered during the 2018 International Double Reed Society Conference in Granada, Spain by Eric Varner.

The Woman with the Unfathomable Eyes for narrator, flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano

Welcome to the gritty world of our Los Angeles detective in the 1940’s as he takes on the case of the woman with the unfathomable eyes.  Her sister’s been kidnapped, and her husband has stolen the ransom money and disappeared.  The detective sets out to find the husband and the money, blinded by the woman’s beauty and her lies. It’s only a matter of time before he finds out her true motives, but will it be too late?

Original text by Timothy Decker.  This noir-style text makes a good work for staging either in a concert setting or as a dramatic monologue with music in the theater.
