This brief piece was originally intended to part of a larger, multi-movement work whose movements were to be inspired by other works of art inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest. After the commission fell through, I stopped work on the piece, but released this and Fanfare for the Little Green Man as standalone works. Chorale Trio (Prayer to Prospero) is a setting of Frank O’Hara’s poem “Prayer to Prospero,” but with the text removed. Even without the text (“Our father local and famous…”), the piece retains a prayer-like, suppliant quality.
