A cycle of three songs based on texts from Confucius,
the Tao Te Ching, and the Buddha for tenor and piano.
1. What Speech Has Heaven?
2. Misery! Happiness!
3. The Ground on which I Stand
Awakenings was composed at a time when my style was undergoing
a major change. It was the first piece I wrote with my newfound love of vocal
music and solo songs, which embodies a spirit of synergy between singer and
pianist which I retained and refined as I continued to write in this idiom.
