As Time Stops To Rest is a three-movement song cycle for SSAATTBB Choir and Piano, with featured Soprano and Tenor soloists. The cycle is dedicated to the composer's late aunt Susan Jordan. The works sets three poems from a larger set of poetry en8tled As Time Stops To Rest, also wriXen by Susan Jordan. The song cycle has an overall arch form of peace followed by tragedy and loss, ul8mately giving way to a final sense of peace. The first movement, Two Friends, paints a peaceful scene of two friends losing track of 8me as they sit by the ocean enjoying their 8me together. The piece opens with serene rolled chords in the piano, which con8nue throughout almost the en8rety of the movement. The constant rolling of the piano creates a sense of ocean waves con8nuously ebbing and flowing. The opening Tenor solo describes the tranquil se\ng and is then joined by the full choir as "warmth and happiness intermix to form an a_ernoon shared by two close friends". The movement features lush harmonies and detailed ensemble interplay. The movement concludes with the con8nued rolled chords in the piano and a final so_ low cluster, as if the texture is sinking into the ocean. The second movement, Storm's End, opens with violent and flurried storm-like arpeggios in the piano, in stark contrast to the peaceful character of Two Friends. The Tenors and Basses open with a rigid imita8ve texture asser8ng how "the storm raged across the bliss field". The piano then mimics raindrops falling more and more violently before finally giving way to a calmer texture. A_er the "storm" has ended, the full choir enters in a mostly homophonic, hymn-like texture describing an overwhelming peace that some8mes follows a_er an intense tragedy or loss. The piece climaxes on the words "day" and "fire", alluding to the feeling of being in love with one's life despite (and perhaps because of) the pain and suffering one has endured. The third and final movement, Magic, describes how the narrator senses the closeness of "the spirit kingdom" all around him or her, but only has flee8ng glimpses of it. The piece opens with an a cappella dialogue between the Altos and Tenors, who are then joined by the Sopranos and Basses. The a cappella opening features lush and 8ghtly packed harmonies that lead to a soprano soloist cueing in a lyrical piano arpeggio. The piece then builds to the joyous climax of the whole song cycle: "But oh, for a moment I grow flowers with my hands!", alluding to how powerful and wondrous these brief glimpses of the spirit kingdom are. The texture then drops down to lulling a cappella chords in the lower voices as two featured Soprano soloists "dance on wings upli_ed". The narrator then finally enters "the kingdom of all" he or she has been sensing, possibly through death. The movement concludes peacefully as the narrator "enter[s] the kingdom of all and AM". The piano concludes with a peaceful postlude recalling mo8ves used throughout the movement. This song cycle would be suitable for an advanced high school, college, or professional choir. The movements may be performed as stand-alone pieces or as part of the full cycle. About the composer: Amy Gordon is an ac8ve composer, arranger, songwriter, and vocalist based in Los Angeles, CA. As a choral composer, she has worked with and been commissioned by numerous choirs, including being the composer-in-residence for Nova Vocal Ensemble. She has also scored numerous films and webcasts.

Text I. TWO FRIENDS The sun touched the wai8ng air As wind and ocean sounds Combined With gulls laughing Overhead Warmth and happiness Intermixed To form An a_ernoon Shared by two close friends So close we missed The passing of 8me So touched by our friendship So eager to communicate The moments in life That freeze and hold s8ll Caught in the magic Of true reality Caught truly conscious Of our connec8on Two friends Surrounded by the sea II. STORM'S END And the storm raged across the bliss field As the moments of 8me captured the wind And bent it, pretending it wouldn’t maYer The sky burned with day8me And overpowered the night As the birds flew higher Almost out of sight The quiet lingered in the wake Of the struggle ended When the pain had gone away And the child stood With tears in his eyes In love with the day And the wind that won In love with the fire Of the sun

III. MAGIC Not far from me Decked in light Glowing with warmth The spirit kingdom Of all Lives Forever close Forever Strong Some8mes Not o_en Not enough But oh For a moment I grow flowers With my hands And dance On wings Upli_ed With all beauty Mine As I enter The kingdom Of All, and AM
