Splendor In The Grass

Roger Ames

About this work:
Commissioned by the Long Island Masterworks Chorus, written in celebration of Sandy Feldstein. A setting of the famous Wordsworth poem: The Child Is Father Of The Man, the chorus writing is medium difficult, with a powerful rhythmic element. Some canonic singing with changing meters, and a sweeping final section that makes a great closer for a concert. Can also be performed with piano accompaniment only. Published by GIA music, Chicago. Orchestra parts are available.
