|Abstract: ||<italic>Distant Light: Songs on Texts by Richard Boada</italic> is a collection of songs for baritone voice, piano, alto saxophone, and percussion (vibraphone and marimba). The texts do not present a continuous narrative, but they share common themes. Most are set in the rural South and deal with the conflict between nature and industrial development. This piece functions as a cohesive whole, but each song could be performed separately and would be effective out of the context of the entire work.
<italic>Distant Light</italic> is made up of eight songs and is approximately 23 minutes in duration.|
