Premiere of 'Above the Stars'

  • Rutgers Presbyterian ChurchN 236 West 73rd Street New York, NY, 10023 United States (map)

My commission for Amuse Singers in New York City was premiered at Rutgers Presbyterian Church (73rd and Broadway) on 18 October at 7:30 pm, with a subsequent performance at the Cathedral of St John the Divine (112th and Amsterdam) on 22 October at 4:45 pm. I was happy to attend the first performance and hear the hard work of Amuse Singers and their director Colin Britt in person in their performance of a challenging program of Renaissance works alongside contemporary reflections. My piece 'Above the Stars' pairs with Byrd's 'O Gloriosa Domina' and uses whole tone scales to inflect a number of cross relations into the work, just as Byrd was famous for.
