    Hatfield is one of my favourite composers as there is such range and depth to his writing. This is one of my all-time favourite pieces to do with high school students. While the notes are deceptively easy, tuning is difficult and it forces the students to really listen. Once...

    that is mastered, setting the mood is the next task. A beginning choir can do surface work with this piece while an advanced choir can really work on the beauty of the piece. An excellent composition!

  • March 25, 2009 ideal acappella piece

    This song has deceptively simple music and beautiful voicing--which means that individual voice control is more important than ever. _When the Stars Fall_ is one of the most beautiful pieces Althouse ever composed!

    I love the simple melody, and the subtle harmonic treatment. It is deceptively difficult in avoiding muddying the textures, but certainly accessible by high school. Hatfield reminds me of Egil Hovland in his ability to create a mood that fits the text. I heartily recommend this one!
