The Light Here Kindled

Solo Baritone and SATB chorus with Brass Quintet, Timpani and Organ

Commissioned for the 350th anniversay of Harvard University. The text of the piece is from William Bradford’s Of Plimoth Plantation. Following an opening solo baritone setting of Governor Bradford’s thanksgiving text, the chorus develops a motet out of a moving passage that starts “out of small beginnings.”
