Querer es poder

Querer es poder is a setting of a Spanish proverb meaning "To want to is to be able to" (or, alternatively, "To love is to be able to").  It is a musical struggle to break free of the Lydian mode.  A shift of mode — to the Mixolydian — occurs the first time the word "es" is sung.  Querer es poder gently but resolutely builds to two musical peaks; the second fades away to a quiet but hopeful conclusion.  Premiered by Yale Pro Musica (Marguerite Brooks, cond.) in 2003.  SATB divisi.  8.5"x11".  Duration approx. 5' 30"
