evening rode tenderly combines and reconfigures the melodies of eight folk songs from New Brunswick. I love to sing these songs, seduced by their intricate ornamentation, tendrils of melody unfurling and doubling back on themselves. The singer is leaving home, heading off on a journey — roving, walking or maybe riding. It’s early summer, fair and pleasant. The journey begins at the time between dark and light. In composing the piece I included a stripped down choreography — fragments of a folk dance which subtly shifts the relationship between the two performers.
Commissioned by Joseph Petric & Danièle Bourget in 2009 with funds from the Canada Council for the Arts
