Other Information

Duration: 15.00

Day of Dreams is the setting of the first 3 verses of The Dying Patriot by James Elroy Flecker.  These verses describe dreams that a dying young soldier has during his last day on earth.  The dreams occur at daybreak, noon and evening and each has its own character, which I have tried to portray in the music.  The choir and orchestra are equal partners, with a prelude, and interludes for orchestra alone which link the 3 dreams.
