Enough was written for an evening of political songs organized and performed by Dora Ohrenstein, Kathleen Supové, and Robert Black. It is a setting of one of William Blake’s Proverbs from The Marriage of Heaven and Hell: “You never know what is enough unless you know what is more than enough.” As you will notice, the piece devolves into the Bach chorale Es ist genug (it is enough) at the end.
A larger ensemble version of the piece is the final section of my piece The Marriage of Heaven and Hell.
The piece is May 23rd in A Book of Days.
