for SSAA, solo cello, djembe, and piano This evocative anthem, from the larger work Snow Angel, is a piece of two halves. Opening with a haunting cello line, the first section ('God Will Give Orders') is mystical and ethereal, until a vibrant figure from the djembe lifts the music into the second section ('Sweet Child'), which is uplifting and bold in character, with a distinctly African feel and an effective a cappella ending.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The music in the first section is static, atmospheric, and languorous. The cello provides eloquent statements in the high tenor range, interacting freely with the voices. As this section draws to a close, the djembe enters, ratcheting up the vivacity of the music. A quasi-gospel motif enters with two measures of syncopated four-voices chords. This musical burden continues throughout, with a small group adding a solo melody line that delineates the text of the poem. The piece builds intensity to a final cadential climax, at which point the instruments suddenly drop out. A brief unaccompanied dA (c)nouement winds the piece down with a melismatic flourish. * Jason Overall, AAM Journal, February 2017 *
