    Program Notes
    Inspired by the book "Black Elk Speaks" by John Neihardt (an oral history of Black Elk, a Sioux medicine man or Shaman), this dramatic work for 11 percussionists culminates in narrator reciting a passage from the book:

    "I looked up at the clouds, and two men were coming there, headfirst like arrows slanting down; and as they came, they sang a sacred song, and the thunder was like drumming. I will sing it for you. The song and the drumming were like this: "Behold, a sacred voice is calling you; all over the sky, a sacred voice is calling."
