Winter’s Vow

Winter’s Vow (for a cappella SATB chorus, duration 6 mins)

Written as an homage to the season, Winter’s Vow begins by evoking the stillness of a cold winter night. As the music grows to weaving lines and lush melodies, the singers’ voices paint a vision of a Christmas both secular and spiritual; where ice, wind, and a single shining star herald the coming of Spring.

Winter’s Vow

Icy darkness of the night
brought the star
brought the light

Winter bows and seems to bring
from the child
from the king

Chilled and shining clear and bright
to the Earth
a vow of Spring
