Light Out of Darkness, Soprano and Piano

Published: 2006

Light Out of Darkness is an evocative work taken from Helen Keller’s own words. This inspiring work portrays some of the poignant realities of Keller’s world: “my fingers are wise” is lyrical and suggestive, “my fingers split the sands” evokes the play of the rippling music of the sea and the final sections capture the strong soaring spirit of the poet.
