As sunrays frolic, Curious clouds Darkness nears. Whisht! Quashed! Lynched! Ashes
As the piano begins and sweeps through the passage work illuminating what is seemingly a beautiful day, it exposes this very beautifully majestic tree, the Hyperion, the septuplets in the piano eventually lend towards the uneasiness that is to soon follow though the ostinato -like passage. It eventually conversely suggests wind breezing through the massive 379-foot tree symbolized by the Horn. The intrusion of the double thirds passage growing into the alternating octaves carry the pieces into the darker revelation that the tree is symbolic for the hanging of a body. As the clouds move in, (5 against 7 groupings), the eventual reality of the lynching has been revealed. Heather Heyer’ death was symbolic of a lynching. The return of the opening theme suggests of hope in life moving forward in unity.
