Programme Note:
Let anticipates the arrival of spring. Snow drifts down, gathers and brings renewal to the earth. The text and music alternate between active sections about the motion of the snowflakes, and more restful sections, starting with the word “let,” which are like a benediction. Let ends with the image of young trees’ thirst being slaked by the melting snow, their fresh new growth giving shade and comfort to everyone.

Let
We are crystal fragments.
We are trivial specks drifting blind out of a sky parched and white.
Let us settle on the dry crust of the frozen earth.
Let us rest on the promise of soil.In time and with the patience of the sun, let us slake the thirst of imminent seedlings.
Let the dream of shade and comfort find its roots.
Let shade and comfort grow here.
