Winter Solstice (2003)

So dark.
So cold.
So lonely.
 
The longest night.
The briefest light.
 
Winter will wane.
Light will grow.
 
So bright.
So warm.
So holy.

Winter Solstice (2003) was written at the request of Bruce Pullan for the UBC Chamber Singers' Christmas in Vancouver CD. I initially declined his request, telling Bruce that I did not like Christmas, even as a child. I eventually agreed, writing a piece honouring the Winter Solstice. I wrote the text and music in Banff and Vancouver, dedicating the piece to Bruce Pullan. The vocal parts mirror one another throughout.
