Composer and conductor Glenn Cortese wrote The Swan Knight to words by Marc Deaton, the tenor who sang it at this performance. Originally written for voice and string quintet, it was premièred at the Cathedral of St John the Divine in New York City on 30 October 2005. This was the first performance of the piano version.

Cortese's work is an excursion into a dream world. Singing with a robust sound, Deaton conducted his listeners through darkness and loneliness into the rich light of an engulfing vision with the help of Fennelly's supportive accompaniment.
