dc.description.abstract This work, commissioned and premiered by Kimberly Gratland, draws its text from the third stanza of an epic poem by Gregory Loselle, entitled "Seven Meditations Upon Angels". The piece is essentially in the form of the Baroque ritornello aria, with sections of instrumental music alternating with sections of accompanied singing. The overall harmonic structure and all of the musical material is organically derived from the principal motive---first presented in the opening gesture of the woodwinds---and the constantly evolving nature of the restatements and redevelopments reflect the shifting moods and numerous references which is an essential characteristic of Loselle's poetry.
