Quick Overview

Drew Collins's fresh and innovative compositional style is exemplified in this original setting of Elinore Wylie's classic poem. Scored for accompanied SATB chorus, the harmonies are at once haunting and warm, evoking the imagery of the text. The texture changes from lush to delicate and back again. It is rare to find a secular choral ballad that will add such depth and variety to a concert. Appropriate for any time of year, especially holiday concerts and festivals.
