An emotional tour de force, this multi-movement work is based on selected excerpts from The Diary of Anne Frank. Spanning more than two years of hiding in the annex, the texts and music portray a psychological progression from fear and despair to strength and hope. This moving work for women's choir includes lyrical vocal lines, lush harmonies, and strong string quartet writing (or piano reduction). The seven movements are designed to be performed as a whole, but are also suitable for performance in various combinations.
