First, a huge THANK YOU to all of you who sent me such positive feedback regarding this piece. I can’t tell you how much your messages mean to me.
Many of you have asked about a publication date for Nox. As this was actually a consortium commission, the Minneapolis performance was really just the first of four ‘premieres,’ so once the other commissioning groups have had a chance to perform it – Falu Kammerkor in Sweden; Coro Citta di Roma in Italy; and Khorikos in NYC – we’ll go to print. (Most likely October-November of this year.)
I’ve been working on a big post that digs deeper into one of the musical quotes I used in Nox (some of you have correctly identified it as sounding like a moment from the symphonic wind version of Lux). I’ll put that up as soon as I’ve finished writing it.
