SATB with soprano soloist (also available for SSAA)

Lyrics: J. Van Alstyne Weaver

Duration: 4:00

Difficulty: moderate-advanced (GIA level 4)

Premiere performance by West Linn High School Symphonic Choir


Atmospheric and ethereal, this song makes the shifting vision of the Northern Lights audible.


And now each shimmering veil
Sea-greens and sapphires
Jewelled with orange fire
Floats from the star she pinned it to.
