Stemming from some under-developed material from my earlier work, Wedding Book, Canopy of Night confronts the dual nature of its title.  Crystalline, upper-register gestures reflect the wonderment of the star-filled night sky.  The work’s central chaconne (a repeated but continuously varied harmonic progression) explores the cover of darkness that provides a haven for less-than-virtuous activities.
