Contemplation is an album of music that I composed during my time at Kansas State University. The album contains four song cycles: Wandrers Nachtlied, Songs of the Prairie, Water Box Musings, and Animalis Musicum. Each song cycle represents a unique style of introspection or contemplation that I experienced while composing each piece, as well as a type of thinking that can be utilized by the listener.
The incredible artists who so generously gave of their time and skills to make this live recording on my senior recital are: Ryan Hernandez, tenor; Lorenzo Butler, tenor; Davis Roe, baritone; Samantha Williams, soprano; and our incredible collaborative pianist, Amanda Arrington.
This album is only available for streaming and digital purchase at this time.
