Lyrics: Sara Teasdale
Duration: varied, 2:00 and up (repeated round)
Difficulty: easy+ (GIA level 2)
This lilting round is perfect for an autumn sing. A couple of chromatic notes add hints of darkness but the text by Sara Teasdale is one of complete confidence.
Suitable for four individuals or larger groups in any octave a cappella, this round is part of my collection of Gathering Rounds, a spiral-bound book featuring 52 rounds for a variety of skills and voicings set to text by female-identifying writers and poets. Every month, a free round is uploaded here and distributed to my email list (join my email list here)!
Please feel free to copy, forward, distribute, and perform this round with attribution as the only requirement: link to my website, tag me on social media, and use the hashtag #gatheringrounds. Send me a recording or video if you like – would love to hear all these and would be happy to share on all my channels!
