Catch a Falling Star    by Peter Sicotte

SATB    a cappella    $2.35    CP 1454     
(see the score while you listen)  duration - 2:35

This song was made famous by Perry Como long.  Upbeat bossa nova with an encouraging message, Peter's arrangement switches into swing at key intervals.

Indian Summer    by Peter Sicotte

SATB    with piano    $2.35    CP 1282     
(see the score while you listen)  duration - 3:25

This gentle folk song brings to life William Campbell's short poem describing the fleeting beauty of autumn as it wanes toward winter.  Scored for SATB, Indian Summer features both men and women on the melody and an expressive 4-part a capella verse.  A nice lyrical addition to any Fall or Winter program.
