Reviews: 

Performing "In the Lavender Stillness of Dawn" was easily the musical highlight of the girls' school year! The students found the musical texture and scoring to be evocative, and the text to be inspiring. I think the audience found that to be true, as well.

Text: 

Drifting on the edge of a dream
Dancing on the tail of a song
Swimming in a sea of violet soft clouds
In the lavender stillness of dawn

The quiet of the night does fade
As the first of the morning birds wake
From the spark of day shines a ray of hope
For this day is mine to make.
