Rudyard Kipling lost his son in a war. Here is a composition written for a classmate who was killed in a car accident. The sense of loss in Kipling's words reflect on loss yet offer hope. The imagery of the sea and the feeling of searching inform the composition in ways unexplainable and yet obvious with an opening clarinet statement that is mournful and the ongoing harmonic language from the choir that is unsettled and shifting. This is a powerful concert selection that will require your choirs' full range of emotions.
