Art: The Girl I Couldn't Be by Artist Mary Ogle
The Mater series was created for use in a multimedia production of Mater in Memoriam: For Irene a requiem for women's voices that was performed in Ventura, CA on June 21, 2003.

Mater was composed by Naomi Stephan in honor of her mother, with lyrics by Sue Moore.

from the composer's notes: This bold and defiant piece expresses my rebellious feelings in ways I never allowed myself while my mother was living. Every mother has an idea of what her child is to be. Music was our common bond -- and paradoxically our source of greatest tension, because of our conflicting self expectations. What better way to express this conflict than in music? Music sets both of us free. The next thing to do is to dance for joy!
