Blue of the Distance (2017)
for two sopranos and piano
Commissioned by Women on the Verge (Elizabeth McDonald, Emily Martin and Kathryn Tremills), with support of the Canada Council for the Arts
What we hide and what is hidden from us is concealed, secreted from view. I am drawn to the hidden narrative of women’s history; and overshadowed or concealed stories of women in present day.
I acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.
