When I heard the title of your album, "Calling All Dawns" I couldnt place my finger on why it was called so. Could you describe your reason? Also, in what way does your music represent a "song cycle"?
It's a collection of songs with a unifying theme... and this case, since it's cyclical, it takes the concept one step further. The title comes from a line from James Joyce's 'Finnegans Wake'.
Congrats on the full score publication! I had transcribed your orchestration based on what I heard on various videos of Baba Yetu and I look forward to "comparing notes" :-).
Hi. I would like to sing a Gothic language version of Baba Yetu and put it on YouTube, but will of course not do so without permission. Please contact me if this is acceptable. Mark UreChristopher Tin responded on 05/28/2011
