Abstract

Voices of the Soul is a composition for orchestra and mezzo-soprano that comprises two movements. It uses texts by the Argentinian writer and poet Alfonsina Storni. Two contrasting ideas are illustrated in the piece, derived from the imagery of the poem. The first movement is about longings, which although different for every person, are part of us as human beings. It is a song for those who suffer through longings as they wait. The second movement is about the desire to grow, to evolve into a more complete person. It is a song of hope, a calling to move forward.
