Autumn

Composed in January 2015, this piece 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,

awakening the day’s menagerie* of life.

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

The menagerie in my garden awaits the dawn.    … Sherelle Eyles 

(*menagerie – a collection of animals or a zoological garden)
