My language changed in this piece … the French language is languid and flows so easily. This resulted in a lot of speech-rhythms that follow the suppleness and easy grace of the spoken French, while still following the text imagery.
In many ways, this sets La lumière apart from other works because of its neo-Impressionistic use of coloured harmony.
