Program Notes

The House of Life songs were written for the composer’s wife, Dawn Padula, and premiered in London, England (June 2013) at the Song in the City Concert Series at St. Botolph-without-Bishopsgate.

The three sonnets, written by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, were selected from the same collection that Ralph Vaughan Williams chose poetry for his House of Life song cycle. Originally scored for voice and piano, Hutchinson orchestrated the work for voice and chamber winds in 2014. The orchestrated version of the work received its premiere that same year with Dawn Padula and members of the Puget Sound Wind Ensemble.
