Program Notes

The text of Ecuatorial is taken from the sacred book of the Maya Quiché, the Popul Vuh, and is part of the invocation of the tribe lost in the mountains, having left the "City of Abundance." The title is merely suggestive of the regions where pre-Colombian art flourished. I conceived the music as having something of the same elemental rude intensity of those strange, primitive works.
