From a Dark Millennium is a single continuous movement based loosely on an austere poem by the composer. This poem, which is not included in the score, is as follows:

SANCTUARY. . . . . . . .

deep forests 
a play of Shadows,

Most ancient murmurings from a dark millennium

the trembling fragrance of the music of amber.

The work is scored for woodwinds, brass, piano and celesta, and an expanded percussion section. Emphasis is placed on the equality of timbre between these four elements.
