Join us for a walk in the woods with renowned composer Toby Twining as we discuss his monumental choral work, the Chrysalid Requiem. Our topics include spiraling notation, Ben Johnston, the New York scene, pragmatic approaches for performance, Dies irae, juvenilia, guide tracks, technology, and accessibility. Our first conversation takes place with Toby Twining, Thomas Schuerich, and Jacob Barton, and then with Stephen Weigel and Toby Twining. We also have Patreon-only bonus content for this episode featuring Bill Alves (who analyzed the Requiem) and Stephen Weigel: https://www.patreon.com/posts/10-2-7-bonus-on-32885743
