Alfred Music Publishing is the worlds largest educational music publisher. Alfred produces educational, reference, pop, and performance materials for teachers, students, professionals, and hobbyists spanning every musical instrument, style, and difficulty level. You can't miss the vivid text painting as the floating vocal parts layer one upon another in the rich sequential refrain. You can almost feel the chill of a winter wind as the haunting opening theme is combined with a chromatically descending counter melody. It's classic choral writing with a contemporary flair. Logical, comfortable singing in all three voicings makes it easy for your choir to sing a sophisticated, secular choral work this winter. Includes part for string quartet.
