Program Note

I was very excited and intrigued when asked to be a part of Chanticleer’s Mass project “And On Earth, Peace: A Chanticleer Mass”, with four other composers, with no particular religious, text or language requirements. With all the composers being of varying ethnic backgrounds, it is a unique project, one that is so needed these days to break down the cultural, religious and ethnic barriers. It is a project that will provoke people to think, and perhaps help a little towards understanding and unity. The more I thought about this project the more I was drawn to the 13th Century sufi poet Jelaleddin Rumi (known as Mevlana in Turkey). Perhaps one of the greatest mystic poets, he also founded the Order of Dervishes (Whirling Dervishes). 2007 is UNESCO International Year of Rumi, in celebration of the 800th anniversary of his birth. The Sufis believe that the goal of man is to emancipate oneself from human thoughts and wishes, needs and senses, so one becomes a part of, a mirror of, god. Through the whirling that can go on for hours, the dervishes are able to achieve emancipation. Rumi's poetry is about the pure love for, and the glory of god, seeking and finding god in everything we encounter, and the desire and yearning for becoming one with the Diety. In setting the poem I used of Rumi, Everywhere, I tried to convey the strong yearning for god with searching lines, at times incomplete, breathless. The glorification and the ecstatic anticipation of unification is portrayed with more direct textures. Of course I am thinking about what Rumi's world means to me in sounds, within my musical language. This surely includes Ottoman, Turkish, as well as Western music. For me, the following four lines from Everywhere well represents the spirit of this Mass:


Moslems and Christians and Jews
raising their hands to the sky
their chanting voice in unison
begins to arrive
