Three-part mixed vocals. Text by Elizabeth Bishop.
A gorgeous, sensitive and uplifting three-part setting of a fantastic poem about the healing power of music. Targeted to junior high and high school groups with a refined sense of phrasing and timing. The harmonic language is current (yes, lots of added 9ths) but not too sugary. There is a significant amount of counterpoint as the three sections of the choir pass the melody around; everyone gets to sing something interesting. The poem appears in its entirety.
Commissioned by the Indian Trail Middle School 8th Grade Chorus, Class of 2016.
