Is there no seeker of dreams that were? is inspired by the poem 'New Dreams for Old' by American poet and dramatist Cale Young Rice (1872-1943). Originally set as a piece for soprano and piano, there were elements in the poem that suggested a longer, orchestral interpretation of the lines, exploring the journey through the poem of loss and grief, and finally towards hope.
