Aviation : for a cappella SATB choir / Matthew Orlovich.

Library shelf no. 782.5554/ORL 2 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

This work is a setting of John Kinsella's poem 'Aviation'.

Comprising three stanzas, Kinsella's poem presents a series of vivid images as seen from windows or vantage points. My choral setting is a response to this series of images. In addition, I have drawn inspiration from the poet's references to the motoric propelling, ascending and gliding of various aircraft.
