The Cloud – SATB
As Tim Sharp travels the world as an ambassador for choral music he sometimes hears composers in foreign lands that deserve our attention. So is the case with this selection based on the Sara Teasdale poem about clouds. The young composer is committed to melody in a way that is a refreshing return to what seems right. The harmonic treatment is sensitive and sensible, and most satisfying. An excellent concert piece for high school, college and community choirs. Medium in difficulty.
