‘Tis a Gift to be Simple

Instrumentation: SATB Chorus
Duration: 2:30
Premiere: 5/22/93
Minneapolis Vocal Consort, Bear Lake, MN

Program Note:
Tis A Gift To Be Simple is based on the traditional text of the same name. The words are suggestive of musical shapes and my four-part setting plays with these, while creating the character of a madrigal. This music is accessible, and appropriate for high school as well as more advanced groups.
