Program Notes

Scattering Bright is inspired by John Donne’s poem “Angels and Air.”

…Thy every hair for love to work upon
Is much too much ; some fitter must be sought ;
For, nor in nothing, nor in things

Extreme, and scattering bright, can love inhere ;
Then as an angel face and wings

Of air, not pure as it, yet pure doth wear,
So thy love may be my love’s sphere…
