Double Chorus SATB (2010)

Music Like Water was originally begun as a companion piece to You Put Apples to Your Lips. It is a setting of Jane Hirshfield's poem, “The Music Like Water” from her collection Of Gravity and Angels.

"How, on a summer night,

the mysterious few bird notes rise

and break against the dark and stop,

and that music continues, afterward..."

Music Like Water is the final movement of the song cycle Summer Fruits. The complete cycle is:

You Put Apples to Your Lips

Speed and Perfection
