Autumn

Autumn (2015) is a celebration of a Queensland Autumn. Composed for Unison, SA or SSA & Piano from Advanced Primary to Secondary School students, Autumn is suitable for Assemblies and Parades, Eisteddfods and Choral Festivals. It teaches harmonic blending, question and answer techniques and contains some unison singing.

Autumn, at sunrise, and the skies are so blue every day.

Hear the magpie call, butterflies like crystals in the sunlight,

Golden Autumn leaves are falling from the trees, Currawongs at play

Wattles, dancing, swaying in the sunshine,

Crimson parrots seeking nectar in the trees,

awakening the day’s menagerie* of life.

Days are getting colder and the trees lose leaves in the swift, cool winds,

The menagerie in my garden awaits the dawn.  

Its Autumn, feel the sunshine,

And the skies are an amazing shade of blue every daySherelle Eyles
