The Story (Choral). Composed by David Heck. For Choir (SSA). Secular. Published by Voice of the Rockies (VR.VOR63C03).
On a text by Miska Miles ("The sun comes up from the edge of the earth in the morning. It returns to the edge of the earth in the ev'ning. The cactus flower will not bloom forever. We will always be part of the earth....") this piece has a nice, flowing harp accompaniment, (do-able on the piano if necessary) and a lovely melody in the flute. In 6/8 time with a few changes - to 3/8 and 5/8 - the three women's voice parts are skillfully handled - moving together homophonically for the most part. Not difficul.
