Originally written for SATTB one-on-a-part, this sprightly and tintinnabular piece works well for both large and small choirs. It’s a setting of one of Edgar Allen Poe’s more cheerful poems, and is well-suited for holiday programming.
Commissioned by Dr. Richard and Mrs. Louise Varco for Dare to Breathe
