Night Vision was commissioned by Persephone Singers, a women's choir in Whitehorse, Yukon, directed by Barbara Chamberlin. It was premiered on May 2, 2015 at the Yukon Arts Centre in Whitehorse. This setting of Whitehorse poet, Joanna Lilley, was part of Whitehorse Community Choir's major commissioning project, which paired Yukon poets with Yukon and Canadian composers and arrangers. The words and music of Night Vision convey the spirit of the cold, vast northern wilderness. The fast, energetic music complements images of wild foxes, coyotes and wolves at night, through the back gate, two pairs of eyes electric in the flash-light. Contrasting homophonic and contrapuntal sections build in intensity toward the climactic final moments and a loud ending. This piece would be an effective finale to a set or program. Duration: 2:40.
