"Whales Weep Not!" performed by Shannon Roberts and Yumi Suehiro

Back in week 100 of the project, I composed a song entitled "Whales Weep Not!" and submitted it to a Vox Novus Fifteen Minutes of Fame competition in which fifteen one-minute works by different composers are selected for performance.  I am happy to say that my song was among those to be selected for performance by Shannon Roberts and Yumi Suehiro in NYC on March 30, 2014.

Text (by D. H. Lawrence):
They say the sea is cold, but the sea contains
the hottest blood of all, and the wildest, the most urgent.

All the whales in the wider deeps, hot are they, as they urge
on and on, and dive beneath the icebergs.
There they blow, there they blow, hot wild white breath out of the sea!
