Programme Note
Joseph M. Martin Song of Wisdom — from “The Old Turtle” (2000),
Song of Wisdom from "Old Turtle" is an uplifting choral and symphonic experience based on the popular children's book "Old Turtle." Douglas Woods's classic story is a powerful acknowledgement of God's supreme love for the Earth and its inhabitants. Joseph Martin transforms the many characters and moods of the book into a musical fantasy that employs abundant text painting and musical imagery — singers actually imitate sounds of animals and nature. An ideal piece for young audiences and for performance by advanced high school, college, and community choirs and orchestras.
