Because I Could Not Stop for Death- This piece uses the Emily Dickinson poem of the same name. I composed it in a circle-like structure where it starts with SATB then goes to SAT in the second verse, then SA for the middle verse, then going back to SAT then SATB. This symbolizes the immortality the poet is facing after death. The harmonic clusters mixed with a tonal sound bring out a supernatural eerie feel. 16 copy minimum order.
