Voices reach out across generations in a newly commissioned work by an award winning composer. A mother writes to her transgender son on his 5th birthday to affirm who he always was. A survivor of conversion therapy writes to the memory of their own younger self, fighting to survive their mother’s desparate atttempt to save them from whom they are. We further explore the intimate power of the human voice and spirit through poems on music by Walter de la Mare, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and Emily Dickinson, and a contemporary Norwegian composer’s settings of a 16th century Spanish mystic.
