Product Description

The Gatherer of Lost Children is a five-movement, 27-minute song cycle for soprano, oboe, violoncello, piano, and percussion. Beginning in 2014, the theme of a composition depicting childhood experiences was conceived while reading through various sources of poetry. The completed work uses the poetry of Philip Terman, who can weave wonderful stories, while also commissioning one poem from North Carolina author, Pam Chillemi-Yeager. The instrumentation was not predetermined, and evolved as the composition took shape. The movements are as follows:
  • “Bird Love,” where a child discovers the innocence of love. [4:26]
  • “The Secret,” where a child, while playing, discovers a secret that will forever change their life. [3:41]
  • “Melanie,” the true story of a child’s enchantment with the fairy realm, and a life cut short too soon. [9:59]
  • “This Seagull,” depicting the energy and freedom of childhood. [2:45]
  • “The Gatherer of Lost Children,” a story within a story, promising protection for all strayed souls. [5:49]

Item JP5126 includes individual parts for oboe, cello, percussion, soprano (includes a condensed reference score), and piano. The percussion part requires toy piano (or celesta), marimba, snare drum, glockenspiel, and chimes.

A full score for individual reference or for a conductor, if desired, is available as a separate purchase (JP5127). A link for the score is listed in "Related products"
