While the Lavenders Were Blooming
composer: Mikel Bell

Written for the Marsing (Idaho) High School Choir. This is a moving, bittersweet recollection of an adolescent summer romance. An older, formal style of English lyrics are placed in a more contemporary musical setting. Opening unison lines give way to alluring harmonies. Gentle and flowing, with plenty of room for dynamic expression.
