OUP-Look Little Low Heavens-pgs1-3-secureLook Little Low Heavens was composed during December 1992 in response to a commission from Cathy leach, to whom the work is dedicated. The title is excerpted from the poem, “Spring” by Gerard Manley Hopkins. The text reads, in part: “Thrush’s eggs look little low heavens, and thrush/Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring/The ear, it strikes like lightnings to hear him sing.” The piece follows the arch shape suggested by “low heavens” as two flanking meditative sections surround a central, soaring fanfare. – HT
