Description
Written for, and premiered by, pianist Lawrence Blind on the occasion of the birth of his son, Wesley.

The score bears this inscription from the Pueblo ritual "t'amu xeh piyeh" (Going forth at dawn with power): "Give me wisdom and lead me to the place where the child of man, child of woman is. You male spirits, female spirits who watch over my home, I have placed before you the food of tradition. Make my heart right and guide my thoughts. Take me to where the child of the spirits is."

Joseph Ford, founder of the Delian Society http://www.deliansociety.org/ sent me his review: "This is a profoundly luminous work, wonderfully evocative, and quintessentially spiritual."
