About this work:
Commissioned for the Peninsula Women's Chorus by the Patricia Hennings New Music Fund through the generous support of Cherrill Spencer on the occasion of its 40th anniversary Martín Benvenuto, Artistic Director Looking at the Sea, by Cao Cao (155-220) Up to the stony hill on eastern shore, I am looking at the boundless sea. The water is running calm, And islands stand in between. Tree on tree grows from peak to peak; Grass on grass looks lush layer upon layer. When the autumn wind blows drear and bleak; The waves surge up greater and greater. The sun by day, the moon by night, Appear to rise up from the deep. The Milky Way with stars looked so bright, It comes out all the way from the sea. How happy I feel at this scene! Ode to the sea that symbolizes my ideal.
