a most creative work, with voices and piano painting Joyce’s poetry in an original and lovely manner. Directors and choirs will fall in love with these two love songs for choir.

Madelyn Byrne

Winds of May

Mixed Chorus and Piano

“Winds of May” took First Place in the Morningside College Choral Competition. It is one of two settings by Madelyn Byrne of poems from James Joyce’s Chamber Music. The other setting, “Rain Has Fallen“, 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.
