Lovely text by Effie Waller Smith inspired this simple round for two. Rhythms are similar but offset, and melodies stray and return to consonant intervals and unisons until, in the end, everything comes together.

 

Suitable anytime, but perhaps especially on Valentine's Day or during Black History Month, for two individuals or larger groups in any octave, this round will be part of my Gathering Rounds project, which will feature 50 rounds for a variety of skills and voicings set to text by female-identifying writers and poets (although this one is by an anonymous writer). Individual rounds will be uploaded here and distributed to my email list every month for free (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!

 

The full collection of 50 rounds will be available as a set for sale in 2022.
