Catch a Falling Star

SATB    a cappella    $2.35    CP 1454  duration – 2:35
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.
