'tis A Gift To Be Simple
About this work:
‘Tis A Gift To Be Simple is based on the traditional text of the same name. The words were suggestive of musical shapes and my four-part setting involves a playing out of these suggestions as well as an attempt to project the text and character in the manner of a madrigal. The piece is published by Arsis Press.
