In honor of the Christmas Season I’m making the “featured work” my choral setting of “The Bird of Dawning”. This was composed back in the early 2000s for a Spartanburg County Christmas festival. The text is taken from “Hamlet”, and it refers to the “Saviour’s Birth”, which is so inspiring that it causes a “Bird of Dawning” to sing all night long. In my setting the piano part offers up a melody which could be considered the “Bird of Dawning’s” song. I’m hoping this is a wonderful, joyous season for all!
