Longing, Dreaming

(from Echoes from the Heart)
Donald M. Skirvin - Donald Skirvin
Icon A cappella Publisher Desc.  "Longing, Dreaming" is the second movement of "Echoes from the Heart," an a cappella, double-chorus work in three movements. In this movement, as in the other two movements ("Ancient Roses" and "I Remember"), the titles of all movements are incorporated into the lyrics to heighten the sense of a recursive journey. "Longing, Dreaming" explores what is the dream and who is the dreamer and suggests a passionate melding of minds and hearts within a poignant dreamscape. "Echoes from the Heart" was premiered in 1998 by the Seattle-based ensemble The Esoterics, Eric Banks, Artistic Director, in their Antiphonia concert, which was comprised of double-chorus works. This was the first major work performed by the ensemble after I assumed the post of Resident Composer for The Esoterics. It was reprised a year later, and a CD was produced of that concert entitled "Antiphonia: Masterpieces for double chorus." The text for this movement and the others is taken from poems written by Gordon E. Abshire whose writings I have used in other works. Gordon passed away in 2005 and left me with many poems to explore in future works. What I particularly enjoy about Gordon's writing is that many poems are like haiku and as such can, in a few words, crystallize a feeling or a thought for all time.
