Track Name: The Face of Love for oboe and piano
The face of love
tender and perilous
came to me at dusk
after a livelong day.

It could have been an archer
with his bow
or else a harpist
with his harp.

I cannot tell
cannot recall.

All that I know
he pierced me
with a shaft
or with a song.

All that I know
he pierced me
to my heart
straight and forever.

Unbearable burning
wound of love.
Track Name: The Face of Love for clarinet and piano
The face of love

It could have been an archer
with his bow
or else a harpist
with his harp.

I cannot tell
cannot recall.

All that I know
he pierced me
with a shaft
or with a song.

All that I know
he pierced me
to my heart
straight and forever.

Unbearable burning
wound of love.
Track Name: Hölderlin's Tower for clarinet duo
Elle est près du fleuve dormeur debout
mais le saule incliné toucherait de sa cîme l'eau
L'église vieille dit les heures de l'île où la nuit descend
Je la vois encore son toit de gris dans le gris de l'eau.
pressens dans la tour de bois ma demeure la folie la folie le silence
clos clos vigilance
Oh Ne pas altérer ce qui reste qui reste, et le doit.
"Was bleibt aber stiften die Dichter."
[Marie Keyser]



It stands by the sleepy river
But the bending willow would touch the water with its very top
The church an old church tells the hours from the island where the night descends
I can still see it, its grey roof in the grey of the water
I have a presentiment in the tower of wood, of my dwelling place, of madness, of silence
Closed in, closed in but keeping watch
Oh never change what remains and should remain
Was bleibt aber stiften die Dichter.....
"What remains, however, is the stuff of poetry"
Track Name: Hölderlin's Tower for flute duo
Elle est près du fleuve dormeur debout
mais le saule incliné toucherait de sa cîme l'eau
L'église vieille dit les heures de l'île où la nuit descend
Je la vois encore son toit de gris dans le gris de l'eau.
pressens dans la tour de bois ma demeure la folie la folie le silence
clos clos vigilance
Oh Ne pas altérer ce qui reste qui reste, et le doit.

Track Name: Three words too many for flute and guitar
Say it in words and you cheat
you cheat the indefinable
you cheat your beloved
you cheat yourself
and it disappears
your beloved becomes as nothing
for you have confined her
to the words you speak
for thought is not reached
and it disappears
you have spoken yourself
into the temporal
which cheats love
It cannot uphold it
and it disappears
do not speak of love
do not speak my love
lest it disappear!
Track Name: The Message of Christmas for clarinet and guitar
Hear the message of Christmas time
Today is born the King of Kings
With glory hidden in a stable
For poor and humble are most able
To see in him the King of Kings


Hear the message of Christmas time
Today is born the Son of Man
With human flesh and pain and woe
Like one of us so we might know
That Jesus is the Son of Man


Hear the message of Christmas time
Today is born the Son of God
Who from his Father up above
came down to give us peace and love
Then sinless died the Son of God


Hear the message of Christmas time
Today is born the Word of God
To human flesh the Word became
Yet was and is and will be the same
For evermore the Word of God


Hear the message of Christmas time
Today is born the Light of Truth
Without it we are lost and stray from goodness
For Christ is the way, the only way
The Light of Truth


Hear the message of Christmas time
Today was born the King of Kings
And glory shone from that poor stable
So poor and humble are most able
To see in him the King of Kings.
