I have just been made aware of the work of David Brunner, composer and conductor. Dr. Brunner has composed music around several pieces by Mr. Berry and is apparently working on commissions for several others.
"The Wheel" is the title poem from the collection of that name. "The Circles of Our Lives" also comes from The Wheel and is a setting of "Song (for Guy Davenport)"—a.k.a "Song (4)" in New Collected Poems. "We clasp the hands" is taken from section IV of the essay "Healing" in What Are People For?"
Exsultate!, the Venice (FL) Chorale, has commissioned Brunner to compose new works based on the Sabbath Poems, to be called "Songs for a Timbered Choir." He has already produced one, "A Timbered Choir" based on "Slowly, slowly, they return," (I, 1986).
Some of this music can be sampled HERE at David Brunner's site.
