Whales weep not! : a tone poem for chamber choir, marimba and crotales based on the poetry by D.H. Lawrence / Becky Llewellyn.
by Becky Llewellyn (1995)
Southern right whales have been quietly and wonderfully returning to Australian shores. These giant creatures bring us back to our mammalian roots, the warm-blooded milky world of our beginnings. In this piece, I have tried to evoke a dreamy half-remembered world using D.H. Lawrence's poem of the same name, where the boundaries between human and whale sounds is ambiguous as are the voices and marimba and crotales, all intermingling.
