Tucked away in that ancient account of Noah and the Ark is a major and curious void: an inexplicable omission. References to Mother Noah—Noah’s Wife—are restricted to just that: “Noah’s Wife”. It is as though she had no existence otherwise. But she did! Now her story begs to be told.

Thank you for the Materials regarding your work, Mother Noah. I appreciate the thoughtfulness of your work. I admire your attention to detail; the orchestral score has a remarkable sonic clarity.

Mother Noah is an excellent work. The libretto and music work very well together to tell the very interesting story. The plot is intriguing and it is always enjoyable to see a “new angle” and depth to a tale which has such a familiar basis.
