Library shelf no. 783.4542/RUT 9 [Available for loan]
Jacinta Painting under Trees, is a setting of Maureen Boyle's poem, from her book of poetry called "The Work of a Winter" which Maureen sent to me. I was so thrilled to read this poem because I met both Maureen and Jacinta O'Reilly at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre, in Ireland, during a composing residency. Jacinta had also lived in Australia, teaching art, and the song reminded me of the way indigenous painters of our beautiful nation also paint outdoors. I usually compose en plein air but the weather was cold and rainy during the pandemic winter of 2020. The song was composed with pen and paper.
Instrumentation: Medium or high voice, piano.
Duration: 3 min.
