"Coney Island," for a cappella SATB choir, is the winner of composition awards from both Octarium and the Manhattan Choral Ensemble. Ideal for accomplished singers: professional, community, collegiate and advanced high school. Often described as "haunting."The text is by Pulitzer prize winning poet Sara Teasdale (1884-1933) and was first published in 1911 in the collection "Helen of Troy and Other Poems." Born in St. Louis, Missouri, she lived for many years in New York City. The wintry, bleak landscape of Teasdale's poem contrasts sharply with the sunny, festive picture that Coney Island usually conjures. Structurally, the poem is in two sections, and the musical composition follows this form. Two melodic fragments are heard in the opening measures of the soprano part and immediately inverted or "mirrored" by the basses. The first fragment, built on seconds, develops in various ways and returns in triplets in the second half. The other fragment, written in larger intervals, reappears, augmented, in the bass section, then in counterpoint near the end.
