Roses?

(Harvey Stanbrough)

Year: 2017

Instrumentation: SATB

Duration: 3 minutes

Program Notes

This is one in a series of villanelles set for a cappella chorus. After first reading and setting Theodore Roethke’s “The Waking” I found quite a few wonderful poems in this most musical of poetic forms by various modern poets. This one, by the author Harvey Stanbrough, was particular delightful, with vivid imagery that allowed the music to come by itself.
