"Lay By" is a chamber cantata composed for the memory of Jewell Bryan Brunsvold by Edgar David Grana and with text by Pamela Brunsvold Rummel. The recording to be presented is a premiere performance to be released later this year as either a performance piece or CD. The featured singer is Kat Vokes and the ensemble is for three instruments: Bb Clarinet, James Noyes; Cello, Luke Krafka; Violin, George Meyer; under the direction of Alex Wakim. As Ms. Rummel wrote in the publication score: "Jewell Bryan Brunsvold was born October 14th, 1923 in Chester, Georgia. A warm and revealing homage to a true southerner. Jewell was a determined, brave woman who overcame all life obstacles with dignity and a love of life that is remembered by all who knew her."
