for tenor solo, clarinet in B flat, violin, cello, and piano
The Moon is Flashing was originally scored for tenor solo and full orchestra, but has here been rescored for chamber ensemble, broadening its reach to smaller ensembles. The work sets three contrasting texts: the titular poem is a short valentine by the composer; 'A Day in Three Wipes' by Chris Newman is a modern lyrical ballad; and the final poem is the D H Lawrence's well-known animal poem 'Snake'. This full score dually serves as a conductor's score and score for the tenor soloist.
