Rain Has Fallen

For mixed chorus, piano, and optional crotales

“Rain Has Fallen” is one of two settings by Madelyn Byrne of poems from James Joyce’s Chamber Music. The other setting, “Winds of May“, is also available from Swirly Music.

The composer writes:

Chamber Music is an early work by James Joyce. It is a collection of poems dealing with the young author’s feelings of loneliness, anticipation, and love.   In this collection, Joyce uses descriptions of his natural environment to symbolize these bittersweet emotions. In my settings of these poems, I am letting these descriptions lead me in shaping the music. These pieces were written for the Palomar College Chamber Singers under the direction of Sally Dean.

    The modern Chapel is a meeting-place for diverse musical expression, a place where choral polyphony has long had a home. The term “a cappella” (“in the style of the chapel”) evokes the sound of a Renaissance chorus unaided by any church organ. This original collection of 14 sacred and biblical rounds (a “poor man’s polyphony”) […]

All parts sing the melody along the […]

    The impetus for this anthem was the Music in Worship event at the 2016 ACDA Southern Division conference in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Conductor Gerald Peel asked me if I would write something that his choir could sing for the event, which was to consist entirely of works featuring the word “alleluia.” In my search for texts, […]
