The Winter's Night composed by Nicholas Myers. Choir Secular. SATB choir. Choral Octavo. Lawson-Gould. Secular; Winter. Choral Octavo. 8 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.28560).
An outstanding choral work. Both the music and the strong lyrics evoke the sound and chill of a deep winter night, "quiet and still, while all the world’s asleep ... dreams pure as white, white as the snow." Stunning. The choral writing is straightforward, yet fresh and contemporary. A concert choir work of great depth.
