Ascension published by Hal Leonard

The Hal Leonard Corporation recently released Sawyer’s “Ascension” for purchase. About the work, they write:

“Winner of the 2018 prestigious Brehm composition competition at the University of Michigan, here is a Walt Whitman text that seems to float in the air, like the stars it is about. Very subtle dynamic contrasts require a skilled choir and thorny dissonances establish a contemporary harmonic language.”
