Awakening (2011) – pipe organ

Awakening (2011)

for organ and optional voice

Awakening (2011) for organ solo was premiered by organist Thatcher Lyman on the Craighead-Saunders organ at Christ Church. I collaborated with him on the piece, and given the coloristic possibilities of the organ, I left the registration choices up to him and any organist performing this in the future. Awakening is a fantasy using the song I wrote setting the poem “Juliet’s Aubade” by E. Louise Beach to music. In the middle of the piece, Thatcher sings a few a portion of the melody.
