When I Was the Forest

| /
Daniel Brewbaker
With a text by thirteenth century poet Meister Eckhart that speaks of the fall from and a return to grace, composer Brewbaker uses mostly homophonic writing with soft, contemporary harmonies to find the soul's rightful place in the universe. This emotional showstopper calls for the full range of a woman's voice and mature emotions. Duration: ca. 4:00.

Performed by Somerset Festival Chorus at Wells Cathedral in England, Emily Ellsworth, conductor.
