LIBRETTO: ALCHEMY: (final movement)  Visions of a Wounded Earth, composer Michael Horwood, world premiere, Sarnia, ON 1996. Eight Canadian writers contributed poetry for this work: Margaret Atwood, Donia Blumenfeld Clenman, Magie Dominic, Bernice Lever, Doris Hillis, John Steckley, James Strecker and Anne F. Walker.

 Alchemy (Adagietto), (Magie Dominic) The poem Alchemy is based on two expressions - the destruction of our wilderness, our waters, our sky, our planet - in essence - ourselves. The second half of Alchemy is an expression of compassion and hope - a door of gracious planetary healing through which we can walk together - we must walk together.

Choral Movement 9, Alchemy: finale, second elaboration of principal theme, measures 102 to 111 (of 134)

Review: A review:  The final section, Toward Healing, rises in joyful harmony of choir and orchestra, over the beautiful poem, Alchemy, by Magie Dominic, written specifically for the symphony.
