Programme Note:
When I read through Carol Burdick's poetry collections in search of texts for a trilogy of choral works, Discards sparkled for me. "Sari's" careful and stately procession along the beach, and the delicate colour and glint of the broken seashells she collects, were both images that, to my imagination, made for potent musical inspiration. The result is a work that dances on the surface and glistens in detail.
Discards was commissioned by the Alfred Chamber Singers (Luanne Crosby, director) in honour of Carol Burdick.
