About the piece

“Ever-flower, hundred-petalled,
fuchia of all valor,
flower never sown in earth
we call the fire-flower:

This red flower they give
on St. John’s, the solstice eve.”

A setting of Gabriela Mistral’s poem of the same title, for intermediate level treble chorus. The poem describes gathering and dancing around a bonfire. The music creates a trance, building until it dissolves into a round.

    the truth you cannot see

    SATB chorus

    3 minutes

    The text for  the truth you cannot see is taken from the end of Alfred Bester's novel The Demolished Man. It offers a measure of hope, and a plea for patience and understanding. The complex harmonies serve to underscore how difficult these things are to achieve.
