For unaccompanied mixed choir
Stoke Fleming is a small hamlet on the English Channel. The text for this work is a secular meditation on the rocks and the waves written by the composer during a weekend stay there in 1978. The music was completed in January 2000 and received a reading by the Gregg Smith Singers at the Adirondack Festival of American Music in July 2000.
Gonçalo Lourenço conducted the Chamber Singers of the College-Conservatory of Music in the world premiere performance of Stoke Fleming on March 11, 2010, in the Werner Recital Hall at the Corbett Center for the Performing Arts in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The recording heard here was made by Matthew Curtis of Choraltracks.
You rugged stone
I'm that crest there
