Composed in 2017, Rain in the Mountains is suitable for Advanced Primary, Secondary school students and Adult choirs. It is available in SA or SSA and piano. It is based on a poem by Australian poet, Henry Lawson.
“The Valley’s full of misty cloud, Its tinted beauty drowning,
The Eucalypti roar aloud, The mountain frosts are frowning.
The mist is hanging like a pall, From many granite ledges,
And many a little waterfall, Starts o’er the valley’s edges.
The sky is of a leaden grey, Save where the north is surly,
The driven daylight speeds away, And night comes o’er us early.
But, love, the rain will pass full soon, Far sooner than my sorrow,
And in a golden afternoon, The sun may set tomorrow.” …. Henry Lawson
