On Meditation

SATB divisi, a cappella

This was the first work commissioned by the Taylor Festival Choir for their inaugural season. Commissioned in memory of Rob Taylor’s father, an avid reader of the Tao Te Ching, the work is featured on a commercial recording by the Taylor Festival Choir, This is Thy Hour, O Soul, released by Centaur Records in November 2006. The text is from Stephen Mitchell’s translation of the Tao Te Ching.
