Sinking Song

Sinking Song (2014)
for three female voices

Live performance 5/18/14 by EstelĂ­ Gomez, soprano, with Alyse Jamieson and Heather Holmquest

This is a wordless etude for three female voices. I hear it evoking a feeling of wistfulness, but only passively or almost accidentally. It’s as if a distant air of melancholy just floated in from a few blocks away.
