Finding You (2011) was commissioned by the Holden Choirs at Harvard University for use at the university’s commencement exercises.
The work sets a text by American poet Robert Creeley (1926–2005) who attended the university in the 1940s.
For the Graduation, Bolinas, 1973
of being human
will stay constant.
The earth, earth,
water wet, sun
The world will be
as ever round,
and all yourselves
will know it,
on it, and around
No one knows
is the happiness
of the circle,
