O Stately Forest (In Print)

“O stately forest thy shadowy arches kind, thou art the only listener of my heart.” An art song based on the poetry of Joan E. Thomas, this piece eloquently expresses emotional struggle while offering a respite in nature. One can almost see a child cradled in the limbs of a majestic old tree. Beginning with a solo soprano statement of the first stanza, the piano then enters, with the remainder of the piece in lush SSA harmony. Your college or mature high school women’s choir will take this piece to heart.

This piece is appropriate for any choral concert or recital. It’s also challenging enough for festivals or trio competitions. Try it for Earth Day!


(Note: 8-copy minimum purchase for most choral titles)
