For SATB (with divisions) unaccompanied Setting a text by Walter de la Mare, this tuneful, rhythmic choral work is infused with Scandinavian style. The poem is accompanied by extensive use of scat, giving a modern twist to the forlorn sentiments of the text. An ideal concert work for experienced choirs looking for something a little different.
