This short SSA piece was written for the University of Michigan Women’s Glee Club. It is an unaccompanied 3-part setting of the poem by the English poet, Robert Herrick. Jaclyn Johnson, Interim Director of the Glee Club said, “This is a WONDERFUL piece! I love that you have composed in an older polyphonic style to match the poetry.”
It is my intention to set a couple more of Herrick’s verses for similar forces to complement ‘Gather Ye Rosebuds’.
The recording was made in November 3013 in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA.
