A Silver Thread NOW AVAILABLE!
I am proud to announce the publication of A Silver Thread by GIA Music! This book is a retrospective collection of all the poetry I have written for choral composers over the last twenty years, as well as many new, previously unseen lyric poems. For a while, the book will be available from the publisher directly or wherever choral sheet music is available. On September 2 the book will be released to the wider public, including at bookstores and on Amazon. Until then, to obtain a copy, attend one of my upcoming poetry readings or, to order directly from the publisher click here.
Coming Soon: Leonardo Dreams of his Flying Machine!
The second of my poems to be illustrated by artist Anne Horjus and published by Acroterion Books is Leonardo Dreams of his Flying Machine, the libretto-breve for the iconic choral work by Eric Whitacre. This new book tells the story of Leonardo's dream of flight through sumptuous oil paintings created by Anne over the last three years. His paintings are adapted from Leonardo originals, created in the Master's style, and ingeniously flow one into another by utilizing the sacred geometry of Leonardo's face as a compositional idée fixe. We plan to launch the Kickstarter campaign to fund the printing of the book in May 2019, to coincide with the 500th anniversary of the life and accomplishments of the great Renaissance Master.
Sign up below for news and updates on this exciting Kickstarter opportunity to help Leonardo fly again! We promise not to inundate you--just to keep you updated on the Kickstarter campaign.
