Into The Darkness They Go, The Wise And The Lovely – Kelly-Marie Murphy
From the Composer:
INTO THE DARKNESS THEY GO, THE WISE AND THE LOVELY is a short, contemplative piece written as a tribute to Bramwell Tovey. Its brevity and simplicity and its wise and lovely inspiration presented unfamiliar difficulties and raised a perplexing question. How does one pay tribute to a person who has been so incredibly supportive and generous over my entire career? I found a hint in a poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay. The title of my piece comes from that poem, which acknowledges that death comes for us all, but we can protest. With that encouragement, I did.
