Description

Inspired by Zoltán Kodáy’s Pange Lingua, this work elevates science to a level of reverence usually reserved for the sacred. The text is a list of animal genera and sub-genera compiled by the composer. Composed for and premiered by C4: the Choral Composer/Conductor Collective, conductor Samuel McCoy, in 2007.
