Clocks – is the fourth movement in Stephen Chatman’s ‘Time Pieces’ work and was inspired by Stephen’s grandfather clock – with soft, delicate, repetitive “tick-tock” motifs and occasional “cuckoo” or low “bong” sounds. https://youtu.be/Tz3T_ouDaD0
Earth Song – A Frank Ticheli cry for peace in his world torn by war, this poignant a cappella setting of an original text is filled with striking dynamic contrasts. https://youtu.be/Aarowtnr-hs
The Road Home – Stephen Paulus’s perennial favorite with festival choirs, this exceptional work has become a standard in the repertoire. https://youtu.be/LbwhSP3ZIq4
Walking on the Air – is a song written by Howard Blake for the 1982 animated film of Raymond Briggs’ 1978 children’s book The Snowman. The song forms the centrepiece of The Snowman, which has become a seasonal perennial on British and Finnish television. The story relates the fleeting adventures of a young boy and a snowman who has come to life. 1/2-hr film: https://youtu.be/ubeVUnGQOIk song: https://youtu.be/WLjwa96t01g
