Late, By Myself (2010)

for soprano and organ
text by Rumi

Late By Myself (2011) was commissioned by Emily Mills Woodruff and premiered with Thatcher Lyman (organ).
Late, by myself, in the boat of myself,
no light and no land anywhere,
cloudcover thick. I try to stay
just above the surface,
yet I’m already under
and living with the ocean
– Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi
