Gather Ye Rosebuds

for treble choir

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.
