Item Number: S0.670577

This is a delightful setting of the text by Christina Rossetti. It is an accessible piece for intermediate choir, and will appeal to all ages. This piece was one of several pieces chosen to be Recommended by The C7 Prize for choral music. 

It is written in a classical style, but also has a modal quality and uses hemiolas for rhythmic interest. The text celebrates the joy of Spring, and the fact that it can be a time of personal growth. The music reflects this in a lilting theme that builds to an exuberant finale.

The piece is for SATB, and the duration is c. 4 minutes. This excerpt is from a recording of the piece performed by the Sainte-Anne Singers (Quebec, Canada).

Sarah Jaysmith has been composing and arranging choral music for many years. Find her at
