About the piece

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.

    Wanderer was written soon after I began singing Renaissance music in my high school madrigal group. I became enamored with the concept of text painting and imitation. Each verse of the poem is reset with slightly different decorative elements to illustrate the text.
