Composer Note:
A Thousand Tongues was commissioned by cellist and vocalist Jody Redhage. This piece is a short but intense response to the following text by Stephen Crane:

   Yes, I have a thousand tongues,
   And nine and ninety-nine lie.
   Though I strive to use the one,
   It will make no melody at my will,
   But is dead in my mouth.

— Missy Mazzoli
