Hist Whist, Op. 25 (2009)

For Two-part Treble Chorus and Piano

Recording:

MIDI Realization

Duration: 2'

Program Notes:

Having heard of "The Fair", Jennifer Ellars (the general music teacher at Varnum Brook Elementary School) invited me to write a piece for one of her choruses. I found some time in October 2009, and found some inspiration in the appropriately Halloween-esque "Hist Whist" by e.e. cummings. Although it ended up being slightly too difficult for her elementary groups that year, it is still a nice addition to any seasonal concert!
