Nine movements. Duration 45 minutes.
The pdf file includes conductor's score, choir score and parts, as well as some useful notes at the start.
The texts are 7 poems by Norwegian poet Rolf Jakobsen, in English translation, and the message ultimately a declaration of love for our Earth and consequently perfect for concerts with the objective to express concern for our threatened environment.
The poems are:
it is blue
fresh water
wait for me
Your thoughts
but we live
The music writing is melodious and tonal (with some contemporary effects!) and this composition is suitable for both youth and other SATB choirs.
It has been very well received in Norway where it has been prformed but also received good reviews from USA where a recording of a concert was presented at radio stations.
