“Dark and Distant Year” and “Home” by Eric Whitacre, from his profound work entitled “The Sacred Veil”. The pieces describe the dawning of new love. The performance took place in Portland, Oregon on March 3, 2020, which was the last public concert this year for the musicians as well as the 2,400 people in the audience. The concert was a celebration of the works of Eric Whitacre and featured him as conductor in several pieces. My thanks to Eric Whitacre for his poignant and evocative writing and to Ethan Sperry for inviting me to participate in this very special event.
