    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.
