Misc. Comments

George Finckel was Fine’s longtime colleague at Bennington. He performed many of her compositions, and his cello class was the inspiration for her Missa Brevis. The first section is a sustained adagio, while the second has a texture change to bowed tremolo harmonics. The piece ends with a recapitulation of the first section, to which Fine added an expressive line resembling the “Lacrymosa (Weeping)” movement from Missa Brevis.
