This piece was written Disquiet Junto Project 0292: Eclipse Music and is dedicated to the memory of Bassel Khartabil.
I have seen two eclipses and hope to see another one soon, weather permitting. I imagined a time when eclipses were not understood and it was thought that they were a portent of the end of the world, as the sun disappeared into the moon. This piece is of the thoughts of those people as they began to see the sun emerge from behind the moon and realized that they would live another day.
This piece is scored for Trombone, Bass Trombone, Sopranos, Altos, Tenors, Baritones, Basses, Violin, Viola, Cello, and String Bass.
