My Love Has Departed
composer: Rick Bartlett
text: Eastern Woodland Native Love Song
SSAA, piano, optional flute
A simple Sioux love song of the loss of a loved one who has gone away never to be seen again. The accompaniment is quite easy, and although the voices move predominantly in a step-wise manner, ranges and tonality may be a challenge for lesser experienced choirs. This work is dedicated to Le Belle Voici, Women's Chorus and its director Dr. John Broman of North Georgia College and State University.
