This short cantata is an accessible and tuneful portrait of Spring. Its four lighthearted movements begin as the snow melts and life beings anew: following this is a hymn to spring and new growth, which is followed by the humorous nonsense song `Spring is Sprung' and finally the choir welcomes May in all its glory and promise of Summer. The words of the first and last songs, `The Snow Melts' and `The Coming of May', are by the nineteenth-century nature-poet John Clare, and the second movement `Hymn to Spring' is by John Newton.
Welcome Spring! is for SATB choir, optional youth choir, and piano, and its original title was ‘Welcome May!’.  A version with string orchestra accompaniment (which you can hear on the audio) is also available from Colne Edition.
Duration c. 10 minutes
All movements may be performed separately, and the third movement, ‘Spring is Sprung’ is also on sale in a separate version for Youth Choir and Piano.
