Composed in 2016 as a wedding gift to my wife, Olivia.

When first your path crossed mine,
The earth stretched out beneath us, renewed and fresh;
Time itself began to yield, for you and for me;
Above, an incandescent sky to illuminate the path.


Commissioned by the Cortona Sessions for New Music for Grant Bingham, winner of the 2014 Cortona Sessions Contemporary Performance Competition.
