Ladies in Green

Instrumentation/Voicing: 
SSA choir & piano

“Ladies in Green” is a wonderful piece that Sorelle Cantanti of Muskego High School had commissioned for the Spring of 2013. Jocelyn used one of my own poems as the text for this piece – “The Trees”. The poetry and music in this piece are beautifully woven together to create a perfect marriage. The light, dancing texture of Jocelyn’s composition creates the image of lovely ladies in green (the trees, of course), dancing freely in the wind."

Dancing around me like ladies in green
their skirts an umbrella, protecting my dream
Arms reaching out, slender, long
Graceful, thin, yet sturdy and strong
While elegant fingers beckon the breeze
I rest my head, asleep with the trees.
