The Flight of Song
for SATB unaccompanied The optional opening section, for which there is a graphic score, is spoken to texts by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and other esteemed poets and authors. The four sung movements which follow areconventionally notated and set to further texts by Longfellow, and they amply demonstrate the hallmarks of Skempton's extraordinarily skilful c horal writing. Subtle word painting and masterful use of harmony reinforce the rich imagery conveyed in the texts, weaving together a work of considerable beauty and power. Immensely satisfying to sing, this piece isideal for concert use.
