Title: When I consider everything that grows...
Scoring: Wind quintet
Year Composed: 2020
Notes: Much like the Shakespeare sonnet paired with this piece, "When I consider everything that grows" is a contemplation on the mortality of living things contrasted with the greater persistence of their impact or creations. The impact one makes does not end with the creator; instead, it carries on the legacy of that creator. The idea that every living thing is only perfect in a fleeting moment before time turns growth to decay is represented in the structure and character of this piece.
