Douglas Wagner's stunning choral writing shines in his arrangement of this Irish folk song possessing a thoughtful text based on the wonders and joys of nature that exist all around us. A mixture of tutti and independent part writing creates an engaging choral texture, and an idiomatic optional flue part adds color and support to the vocal lines.
