Seven Madrigals for Chamber Chorus
Words by Benjamin Rogers
Commissioned by Volti as a part of the Volti Choral Arts Laboratory
Mixed Chorus (SATB)
Words Become Unlatched is a set of seven madrigals for unaccompanied chamber chorus, created collaboratively with writer Benjamin Rogers. Throughout the work, the chorus both sings and speaks Mr. Roger’s texts, a varied collection of thoughts and images related to the many relationships that we form in our lives. The creative process began in June, 2007, and included a workshop with the members of Volti, for whom the work was written.
Words Become Unlatched was a result of the 2008 Volti Choral Arts Laboratory commissioning and residency program, and is dedicated to Robert Geary, Mark Winges and the members of Volti.
May 18-19, 2008 Volti, with Robert Geary, conductor (San Francisco and Berkeley, CA)
