Summary
... "The Drop that Contained the Sea" is a collection of commissioned works, reimagined and arranged for chorus and orchestra. Each of the 10 pieces is sung in a different language, exploring a different vocal tradition. Each piece also deals with water in a different form, arranged in the order the water flows through the world: melting snow, mountain streams, rivers, the ocean, and so forth. And like my last album "Calling All Dawns", the end of the album flows back into the beginning, reflecting the endless nature of the water cycle. Finally, the title ... comes from a Sufi concept: in the same way that every drop of water contains the essence of the sea, inside every human is the essence of all of humanity. In keeping with this idea I've introduced a water theme in the Prelude, and woven subtle variations throughout the album. It contains all seven notes of a major scale - four descending and three ascending - mirroring the flow of water though our world, and representing the vast ocean of melodic possibility contained within a single scale."--Forward in booklet, p. 2
