Eric Whitacre : Three Flower Songs : SATB : Sheet Music : Eric Whitacre

Eric Whitacre : Three Flower Songs

Go, Lovely Rose is structured around the cyclical life of a rose, and is connected throughout by the opening 'rose motif,' a seed that begins on the tonic and grows in all directions before it blossoms, dies and grows again. Each season is represented. With A Lily In Your Hand is from a prodigious series of poems arranged in thematic "suites," later collected and in 1983 published as Suites. The original poem is titled: Curva. I Hide Myself is a simple little song. All of the musical suggestions come from a careful study of the poem, a quiet, passionate soul occasionally speaking a little bolder than the age will allow. She loves almost to the point of distraction, and this mood must prevail in the performance: shy and sullen, her passion surging to the surface only to sink back into the silence that is herself.

Songlist: Go, Lovely Rose , With a Lily in Your Hand , I Hide Myself

Eric Whitacre : The Stolen Child

Set to a text by William Butler Yeats, this work was commissioned by the National Youth Choir of Great Britain and The King's Singers to celebrate their 25th and 40th anniversaries, respectively. The chorus represents the voice of "the human child, innocent and na•ve" while the six solo voices represent the "water and the wild," seducing the children away from the world with the promise of endless revelry and eternal youth.
