Residency in Paradise!
I had a very productive time at the Hermitage Artists Retreat mid-December finishing All Things Are Set Ablaze which was commissioned by Jacqueline Horner-Kwiatek for her new ensemble ModernMedieval Trio of Voices (Martha Cluver & Eliza Bagg, sopranos; Jacqueline Horner-Kwiatek, mezzo-soprano) and is based on the writings of famed German abbess, writer, composer, philosopher, Christian mystic, visionary, and polymath Hildegard von Bingen. Wonderful fellow artists, fantastic staff, and a lovely locale made all of the hard work… easy. Sort of. I’m looking forward to my next stay at Hermitage!
