long drives with everything to think about
Op. 17 (2018) for satb choir

Long Drives with Everything to Think About is a poem by my friend and colleague, Matthew Mancillas (1993). A Texas native, Matt traveled to Illinois State University to pursue a masters degree in composition, the program where we met. Matt wrote Long Drives just before embarking on the twenty-hour road trip to central Illinois, capturing the essence of beginning a new journey in life. I was immediately struck by the honesty, acceptance, and repose of Matt's words and was inspired to write this introspective setting.
