Composer Note:
How to Pray was originally commissioned by the English cellist Audrey Riley, as a kind of spin-off from the British post-minimal band Icebreaker. Audrey had this idea to put a little band together that would be at home somewhere between contemporary music and pop. Her band included some people who were intense new music players and some rockers who were from a world in which feeling music was more useful than reading music. I tried to make a piece that took advantage of both of these musical strategies.
