Another piece of my father's is called To Manitou. It's from 1976, and it's a setting of Native American texts for soprano and ensemble. It's a really beautiful piece. I took two melodies from his piece and incorporated them into mine: one is an exclamation of delight by a chief's daughter, the other a lament of exile sung by a mother to her children.
