At Thrity-Five

SATB (divisi) (2015)

Inspired by the themes of Age and Youth - this is betix the two. Setting Robert W. Service's poem of the same title, At Thirty-Five is a wry, occationally poignant and ultimately uplifting rant about the duldrums of what we might now call a "mid-life crisis". The character of the music owes much to the bombast and flamboyance of some of the later English glees.

Note: If you haven't read Service's "Cremation of Sam McGee" you are missing out.
