to find a song... was commissioned by the Caney Creek High School Choral Ensemble, Conroe, TX, in honour of a fellow teacher. A great addition to high school and college choral repertoire. Voice ranges are very accessible. The piano accompaniment may require a fairly good accompanist. The simple theme in the piano repeats itself throughout the work in variations as it moves from a flowing beginning to a jazzy middle and returns to a full fledged finale of the theme. The poet seeks to find a song, a melody, a harmony, a rhythm, a tempo to life, but in the end life itself is the core of these very aspects. Life is already in motion.
