Water is Taught by Thirst

unfinished work for choir

1 leaf. Large folio, ca. 430 x 278 mm. Notated on recto in various coloured inks on Judy Green printed 20-stave music manuscript paper. Verso with text of Dickinson’s poem underlined in coloured inks. Signed by composer at lower right.

The present composition is not included in the works list on Thomas’s website. 

A fine example of the composer’s creative process, offering significant insight into the genesis of this interesting work. The composition was apparently never further developed; this sketch is thus the only source of Thomas’s setting.
