About the work
A song of true love.
Commissioned by E. Daniel Shingleton in honor of the East Carolina University Chamber Singers, James Franklin, conductor.
When we’re gone 10,000 years and waves still break
Gloriously on this radiant sand,
Gulls soaring, winds howling, mist spraying o’er the port,
Only then will we know if our lives rang true,
When you and I tumbled together amidst all of this blue.
From Ocean Poems. Text by Jonathan Talberg.
World premiere by James Franklin and the East Carolina University Chamber Singers:
