About the Score
Ten years after composing my first SATB choral pieces (2 Childhood Poems of Walter de la Mare) as a junior in high school, I decided to try setting another pair of children’s poems for my D.M.A. composition recital at the University of Kansas. I thought it would be fun to revisit the style of those first pieces—and I needed to write something that a volunteer choir could pull together with minimal rehearsal time—so it seemed like a good fit.
The settings are simple, with what I hope are a few pleasant surprises along the way. The set would be a good challenge for an experienced high school choir, but I believe there is enough nuance and harmonic variety to hold the interest of a collegiate or professional ensemble.
