Threshold of the Night (SATB) : O'Regan, : Tarik O'Regan : Music Sales America Series : SATB : Published by Novello : # NOV956703
Threshold of the Night by : Tarik O'Regan

Threshold of Night (a setting one of Kathleen Raine's Three Poems of Incarnation) was commissioned by St John's College; Cambridge and was premièred under the direction of David Hill in the College chapel on 25th November 2006. Written for Advent; the work aims to highlight the yearning that all societies have; in their time of need; for guidance from beyond their community. By coincidence; however; this composition was completed on the eve of 29th August 2006; one year after Hurricane Katrina; one of the deadliest in the history of the United States; made landfall in Louisiana. Looking at Raine's words in this context ('Go back; my child; to the rain and storm'; 'I will not go back for sorrow or pain'); the poem can be seen to echo the conflicted and anguished thoughts of displaced New Orleanians. The original Advent sense ofdesired guidance takes on a specific; if unintentional; significance with regards to the tragic outcome of that hurricane; this is emphasized by the bluesinflectedharmonies found throughout Threshold of Night.
