This processional features a four-part canonic melody that builds from a single line into four parts, all in different keys. This results in some interesting false relations and dissonance between parts, but resolves and dies away at the work's conclusion.
Instrumentation: SATB choir, piano.
Duration: 4 min.
Difficulty: Medium — long legato lines, poly-tonal canonic
Commission note: Commissioned by Leichhardt Espresso Chorus.
Text from The More Loving One, by W.H. Auden
