The Spinning Wheel

Composed by Walter Savage Landor, music by Ruth Morris Gray. Choral Octavo. Choral Designs. Secular. Choral Octavo. 12 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.27073).
Item Number: AP.27073
A haunting piano motif, pensive minor melody, and flowing vocal phrases weave a fine musical fabric for SSA choirs. Composed as a 3-part round, the range of this piece is primarily one octave for all voice parts and falls within the comfort zone of developing female voices. The spinning text lends itself well to canonic writing. An excellent teaching piece.
