Song for the Seasons
Appropriate for church or community children's choirs, this elegant anthem offers the flexibility for use in both sacred and non-sacred settings. The anthem's opening section revels in the beauty of nature found in the glories of springtime as well as the quiet refreshment of wintertime. The text of the Doxology, set to a new melody, comprises the anthem's B section where flute or handbells may also participate as a support or substitute for the optional second vocal part. This section also provides an optional non-sacred text that can be sung in place of the Doxology. Measures total 53.
