'Morning' for Piano and Ensemble

I worked with Catherine Dixon on a guided meditation, and we found that ‘Morning’ from ‘Pieces for Piano’ worked beautifully with her words. But she wanted to add orchestral colour, which inspired me to enlarge the piece. Parts for an ensemble of solo strings and woodwind has been woven into the original piano piece. It’s like the piano version is a drawing and now the colour has been added to create something quite different.
