Notes de programme :
The Drift of Stars is a line from a poem by T. S. Eliot, and refers to the machinery of the real world around us, of which we as humans are only a part. Often, the things that happen to us, and to those around us, are difficult to accept. Most people spend their lives searching for reasons, but few find them. The best we can hope for seems to be the ability to accept the flow of life with grace, and believe that somewhere, somehow, things make sense. I deliberately created a text which makes no reference to any religions or philosophies, in the hope that I could bridge all of the differences between conflicting faiths. A few years after I wrote it, I got a phone call from a choir director who was uncomfortable with the text because she considered it to be "pantheistic!"
