SSA, vibraphone, marimba

Dedicated to the Hamilton Children’s Choir, this piece for SSA choir is accompanied by vibraphone and marimba.  Each of the percussion parts is simple enough to be performed by a young percussionist.  The work portrays the emptiness felt  at watching a loved one’s ship disappear from view, leaving only the empty sea.  Very moving.
