The Moon Shines Down
Jacob Narverud (composer), Jacob Narverud (lyricist)
Harvest depicts the spirit of the fall season through a series of thoughts on nature and life. The text was inspired by the colors and nostalgia of the Kansas prairie in autumn. Lonely, empty spaces in the fading landscape evoke conflicting feelings of wistfulness and peace--a time to reflect on our present surroundings and the deeper meaning of life itself. Lush harmonies coupled with rhythmic iterest are found throughout the piece, sure to delight singers and audiences.
