    A Child Said, What is the Grass

    is written for the 16 voices of the Crossing Choir and Donald Nally, their conductor, who commissioned the piece. The text of the score along with its title comes from a poem by Walt Whitman describing the everlasting cycle of life through the eyes of a child and through the eyes of himself as much as these two are separable.
    The premiere took place at the Month of Moderns Festival in the Philadelphia Chestnut Hill Presbyterian Church on June 21, 2015.
