Commissioned for the Phoenix Bach Choir and the Kansas City Chorale, both under the direction of Charles Bruffy, This Moment is a tone poem that calls the listener to be in the moment and to discover all the beauty, power, and magic that awaits usMoreCommissioned for the Phoenix Bach Choir and the Kansas City Chorale, both under the direction of Charles Bruffy, This Moment is a tone poem that calls the listener to be in the moment and to discover all the beauty, power, and magic that awaits us when we are open to it. Hayes begins the piece with quiet and plaintive musical phrases that slowly build in sonority and harmonic complexity. The piece concludes much as it began, with lush chords framing the phrase in silentio while the sopranos whisper into stillness.
