for Actor, Soprano solo, Choir SATB and Piano

THE CHILDREN´S HOUR, which is a setting of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem of the same name (first published in 1860), was composed by Alberto Roque Santana for the Bowdoin Chamber Choir during the summer of 2011. The work is written for an actor, soprano solo, mixed choir and piano, and the composer writes that “the weight of the piece falls on the actor´s interpretation, not only performing as a simple reciter, but as a true character – sometimes becoming Longfellow himself – bringing to life this most intimate and delightful poetry.”
