Morning

Morning
for sa voices and piano

Written with Middle School-aged singers in mind, this work engages a text by one of the composer’s favorite poets, Sara Teasdale. Each of the poem’s stanzas is set to its own melody, and the two are then layered over each other. The ending canon is short and the effect is a beautiful blurring of voices.

Morning by hunter t. johnson, performed by Bolivar Middle School; Heather Hamilton, director; Dr. David Giles, accompanist
