Dusk from I Will Sing to the Stars

Written for the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus, this SSAA setting of a Sara Teasdale text begins in unison. This verse structure is followed by a refrain and a canon between the two voices on the text, “the air is blue and sweet.” The contrasting middle section allows the voices to become the focal point on the text, “let me sing like birds, sing before night.” The third movement of the three-movement work, “I Will Sing to the Stars.”
