Writing for EXAUDI at Dartington

I received a letter yesterday that I’ve been given an award to go to Dartington this summer, in Devon, to write a piece for the vocal ensemble EXAUDI, directed by James Weeks.

YES!

The only stipulation is that the text has to be in French. So I’m reading up on my Rimbaud, Mallarme, and Baudelaire. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
