Program Note

"We came to New Mexico to stargaze in clear skies, but also became fascinated by the land. The mountains are not upthrusts of granite, but sediments of a former ocean floor, in layered stripes of yellow, black, and brilliant red. In my imagination, all the layers called out to me at once, each singing of the era in which it had been deposited."

--Matthew H. Fields
