Loveliest of Trees

For SATB and piano A. E. Housman’s secular text ‘Loveliest of trees’ is a reflection of the beauty of nature from the perspective of a young person. The charming setting in 3/4 features gentle and sturdy arpeggios in the left hand of the piano balanced with accessible choral lines, which rock back and forth through modal and nostalgic harmonies.

A Heart to Serve

A Heart To Serve“Give me a heart that loves you best, a heart that finds in you my rest, a heart to love, a heart to learn, a heart to share, a heart to serve.” The gentle folksong melody O Waly Waly is the foundation of this sincere anthem.
