    Program Notes
    ...ascends the sky was inspired by the William Blake poem “Morning.” It was commissioned and premiered by Dr. Julia Gaines.

    "Morning" by William Blake
    To find the Western Path,
    Right thro' the Gates of Wrath
    I urge my way;
    Sweet Mercy leads me on
    With soft rependant moan:
    I see the break of day.

    The way of swords and spears,
    Melted by dewy tears,
    Exhales on high;
    The Sun is freed from fears,
    And with soft grateful tears
    Ascends the sky.

    • Ascends The Sky by Dave Hall // Marimba

      http://jtmccannmedia.com This is my performance of Dave Hall's composition entitled "Ascends The Sky", which was inspired by the poem "Morning" by William Blake. It has very interesting motifs and beautiful melodies that seem to echo throughout. In this video I attempted to depict what I felt this piece embodied while I got to play it. "Morning" by William Blake: To find the Western Path, Right thro' the Gates of Wrath I urge my way; Sweet Mercy leads me on With soft rependant moan: I see the break of day. The way of swords and spears, Melted by dewy tears, Exhales on high; The Sun is freed from fears, And with soft grateful tears Ascends the sky.
