"Voyage to a New Land" is a contemporary work for
four-part chorus (SATB) and piano. A version is also available for women's chorus (SA and piano); see associated scores below. This piece is about the
thoughts of emigrants who leave the old country under
duress. Full of misgivings, they wonder why they must leave
their country. They undergo a perious voyage through stormy
seas, and when they finally reach land, they react in
a frenzy of pent-up feelings and joy. Soon they begin to
feel homesick, and have second thoughts about their
irreversible decision to emigrate. Finally they
resolve to take advantage of the opportunities and
bounty of their new home. Written in five sections, the
music flows through a wide range of moods that closely
follow the emotions expressed in the lyrics. The first theme
that starts out the piece in a majestic mood is repeated
later on in counterpoint, hardly recognizable in its tearful
emotion. When the theme returns again at the end of the
piece, it is first sung in a minor mode. A short cathartic
interlude expresses in a crescendo the new dreams and goals
of the immigrants. Then the main theme is repeated
nervously in a major key, expressing the transformation to
an apprehensive optimism about the future. For the entire set of lyrics, see: http://users.erols.com/druben/voyage.html
