Programme Note
Carson Cooman Set Me as a Seal (2009)
Premiere:
June 14, 2009
Cathedral Choral Scholars
Edward A. Broms, director
Cathedral Church of St. Paul, Boston, MA

Text:
Song of Songs 8:6a, 7a

Composer Note:
This setting of a very familiar text from the biblical Song of Songs was originally composed in 2009 in my capacity as composer-in-residence at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Boston, MA. The variable size of the cathedral's choir resulted in the creation of unaccompanied motets that could be performed effectively with either large or small groups in both secular or sacred contexts. Two lush outer sections frame a brief middle with a two-part imitative texture.
