The second song, "Love Song," from the 11th C. Cambridge Songs, celebrates spring and its poignant beauty "While I see all this...I am sighs in midst of all this rejoicing." The final movement is a drinking song from the 12th century. It is ideally suited for a men's chorus concert performance.

    I sang this work with the University of Michigan Men's Glee Club and it was one of my favorite pieces to sing as well as being very well received by audiences. The second movement is beautiful and the last is particularly exciting. There are lots of additive (3+3...

    +2+2) type rhythms, which can be a pain to learn but give the music a lot of spice once they are ingrained.
