NOTES

The First Stage is a piece I wrote about the death of my mother.  The piece was written for the amazing choir musica intima, and commissioned by The Little Chamber Music Series That Could.  It received multiple live performances at the Mountainview Cemetery.

I was commissioned to write this piece two months after my mother died. A very fresh take on processing death… (JP)
