Description My own setting of Emily Dickenson's exquisite poem "Of Bronze and Blaze," which viscerally
evokes the wild and mystical majesty of the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights. The poem is
bifurcated into two sections, the first set against an incessant ostinato in the piano with soaring
vocal melodies, and the second an introspective meditation, concluding with a wisp of the earlier
ostinato, trailing off into space as the last strand of light disintegrates into the ether.
