The Little Land (Barcarolle) (No. 2 from Four Heartfelt Anthems Transient Glory Series). Composed by David Del Tredici (1937-). For Choral, Chorus (SSA A Cappella). Transient Glory. 12 pages. Boosey & Hawkes #M051474349. Published by Boosey & Hawkes (HL.48005105).
From Del Tredici's Program notes: “In this traumatic post-9/11 world, I felt an urge to connect with, and even comfort, the youngest generation of budding musicians. Heart and felt are two words that directed my choice of texts: I wanted to tell something about myself, as well as about the joys of childhood ... Stevenson's The Little Land re-creates the imaginitive world that to daydreaming children seems so natural.”.
