In 1990, Ewazen wrote his Three Lyrics of Edna St. Vincent Millay for soprano Jody Dall'Armi with piano accompaniment. About ten years later, Ewazen created a version for trumpet and piano, and also for trumpet and marimba. Answering a commission by Cantabile Chamber Chorale in celebration of their 20th anniversary season, Ewazen set the first poem, God's World, for mixed chorus and piano. The text celebrates the wonder and beauty of our world, but with an understanding of the fleeting temporal passing inherent in each view. Ewazen's lush melodic lines are crafted to match.
