Description

Composer's Note:

A gentle setting of Jeri Theriault’s poem about Andrew Wyeth’s “Chambered Nautilus.” The poem begins “A woman sits in bed, wasting to a lightness that travels well.” The principal musical motif, a pulsing riff in the cello, suggests a lullaby, or the lapping of the surf outside the woman’s window. “The dark four-poster, boat-solid, waits for a fresh breeze.”
