Now It Is Autumn
for mezzo soprano, baritone, chorus, and orchestra
Poetry: D. H. Lawrence
[Withdrawn, not available for performance]
Composer Notes: This work was a setting of D. H. Lawrence’s final poem, “The Ship of Death.” In the decade after I composed it, my personal worldview shifted dramatically, and I lost interest in Lawrence’s poem. So I consequently withdrew this work. However, I continued to love some of the musical materials, and I used some of them in later orchestral works.
