I Saw a Maiden

Regular price $1.90 CAD

composer: Jeff Smallman

text: 15th century Basque

Duration: 4:45

SATB, piano

Written for the Woodstock Fanshawe Singers during Jeff's fifth term as composer-in-residence.  The newly-composed melody echoes the age of the text.  This piece is very strophic, verse after verse with no break, however Jeff has kept it interesting by shifting the melody to different voices and changing the harmonic progressions.
