(not for performance use)

While it can be played as a stand-alone piece, this work was written to be performed in tandem with Light Descending. The two pieces were part of the 2023 Purposeful Repertoire Consortium and were composed with musical elements and the theme of “light” in common to create separate but complimentary works. (Similar to the common practice of performing Grainger’s Irish Tune with the shorter Shepherd’s Hey.)
