A Hymn to Biodiversity

Sincere thanks to Matthew Curtis (choraltracks.com) for this recording. For song description and sheet music, see below.

Description: “A Hymn to Biodiversity” was composed on International Biodiversity Day (May 22) in 2016. It is dedicated to Awegechew Teshome, Melaku Worede and John Martin — my three biodiversity mentors — who introduced me to the “radical” idea that farmers, seed-saving farmers, have been humanity’s ingenious plant breeders and nurturers of biodiversity from time immemorial. With thanks to the Boston-based Blue Heron Ensemble for introducing me to the haunting music of Guillaume Dufay, which served as a major inspiration for this piece.
