This tiny work came about thanks to a personal correspondence with Robert Tragesser, the husband of the late poet Vicki Hearne. I created a setting of her mystical poem "The Tree That Plucks Fruit" for chorus, and in the course of acquiring permission to set that text from the estate of Vicki Hearne, Tragesser shared with me an unpublished, handwritten fragment by Hearne, which describes a room at night, and the wonder of looking at the stars. It was composed for Katie Procell in gratitude for her otherworldly musical ability.
