Product Details


These songs for SATB choir and band were written in 2004 as part of the commissioning series at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Each poem represents a character, real and/or imaginary, that serves as the basis for each of the songs. The Snow King is the powerful central figure in the first song, subjecting his entire kingdom to eternal winter as a result of unrequited love. Geometry chronicles the attempts of a student to study the eponymous subject while keeping her daydreams at bay. Testimonial is the most nostalgic of the set and forms the emotional core of the cycle. It is a recollection of the innocence and wonder of childhood. Horse and Tree is a dialogue between a parent and child riding a carousel. The earnest nature of the young child's questions is contrasted with the parent's joy in sharing this magical moment. This work provides a fresh new addition to the repertoire for band with choir that can be programmed separately or together.
