Commissioned Michael Zaugg for Pro Coro in 2013, this is a large work for 16 part a cappella choir. The genesis of this work came from Michael and I’s love for comic books and the illustrated page.

Paired with the poetry of 19 century Symoblist, Georges Rodenbach, each movement is meant to convey the story of one of five graphic novels from Les Cités Obscures, a Belgian series of comics created in the 1980s by writer Benoît Peeters and artist François Schuiten.


The Great Walls Of Samaris
adapted from Le Brouillard Indolent De L'Automne
by Georges Rodenbach

Between the towers, like the incense full of dreams
That will linger in the naves after the most solemn Mass;
And it sleeps like a linen spread out on the ramparts.

It unfolds and folds back on itself again, like a wing without end;

and turns slightly toward divine,
And beneath this pallid brushing, all is lost.

All is grey, cloaked against the pale depth of air,
