Olson: Incantation

Recorded September 2022 at Mountainview Cemetery

Part one of the 2022 Bridge of Dreams:

We open with Tawnie Olson's monumental work, Incantation. From the first words of poet Lorri Nielsen Glenn, the piece invokes a gusty and mystical sound world, transporting the listener (and the singer) into dreams of a world where we are all "gathered and sung in the morning." Musical material is based on the call of the meadowlark, which is found throughout the cascading voice parts, as well as in the cello and organ parts which wind their way through the score.
