SnowflakesCANTABILE, R. SCOTT DIR.
00:00 / 00:00

Snowflakes is a short, peaceful, wintry song for a cappella SATB chorus, with lyrics by Linda A. Copp, a great choice for high school and college choruses. 

Snowflakes spill from heaven’s hand
Lovely and chaste like smooth white sand
A veil of wonder laced in light
Falling gently on a winters night.

Our World              

 

SATB with piano

Our WorldCantabile
00:00 / 00:00

An uplifting, secular piece about our planet’s place in the universe with lyrics by the composer. Its energy and relatively low  difficulty make this three-minute piece an excellent choice for high school or community group.

You and I share a single place
A private universe, tiny point in space.
Complex world of water, stone, and air…
Necessary water, stone and air
Turning while we whirl around the sun…

Spinning as we whiz around the sun.

Boethius said

SATB unaccompanied

BoethiusCantabile, R. Scott, Dir.
00:00 / 00:00

A musical tribute to the Roman philosopher Anicius Manlius Severinus Boëthius (477–524 AD).

Boethius said:  

In celestial revolution, motions of great bodies are sounded in their courses.

And some are higher, and some are lower

some faster, some slower, 

some bigger, some smaller.

And these extremely rapid motions could not be completely without sound.

The Isle is Full of Noises 

                        

SATB with piano 

Isle is full of Noises (excerpt)Cantabile
00:00 / 02:47

Adapted from The Tempest, this is a dramatic, 8-minute cantata on Shakespeare’s eloquent meditation on dreams and music.

The isle is full of noises, sounds, and sweet airs

that give delight and hurt not.

Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments

will hum about mine ears

and sometimes voices will make me sleep...
