Bells (C3-F4 voice and piano)

Run time: approx. 3′. N.B.: Bells is also available for C4-F5 voice and piano. Based on text by Edgar Allan Poe, Bells started as an academic exercise in text setting and word painting, but it became a light, maybe-passively-festive celebration of wintertime and joy.

Description

Bells, based on text by Edgar Allan Poe, started as an academic exercise in text setting and word painting, but it soon became a project I genuinely enjoyed working on, rather than an assignment I simply had to complete for school. Despite my fondness for the piece, I didn’t have an opportunity to get it performed until two years later. As a result, Bells underwent minor revisions, eradicating a few details that were only present for the sake of practicing certain compositional techniques. The end product is a song I enjoy even more now than I did as a sophomore, combining my favorite aspects of the original piece with a more current perspective on life and music.

Run time: approx. 3′. N.B.: Bells is also available for C4-F5 voice and piano.

Unavailable Piece Request
Use this form to get in contact with me about a piece that's either temporarily or permanently unavailable. I do sometimes approve and send out works I've taken off my For Sale page, but be advised: it's a rare thing, partly because getting those pieces ready to go would involved a lot of time and labor that I might need to dedicate elsewhere. Still, if there's something specific you're looking for, tell me about you and your project! Even if I can't make that piece available, I might be able to recommend something else (either of my own or by someone I admire). DO NOT use this form for pieces whose descriptions say "I control where this one goes pretty tightly." Those web pages have their own form! Thank you!
Piece names here, please. You can always reference my full works list if you're not sure.
What I really want to know here: why THIS piece? Some questions that might help you structure your response: are you working with an ensemble at a specific skill level? Is there a particular subject matter you're programming for this project? Do you just really like how the piece sounds?
