songs about women
SSAA Chorus & Piano | 1' | Graphite | Text: Dale Trumbore
To define what it means to be a woman might just be impossible; this piece is more concerned with what it means to be human.
SSAA a cappella | 3' | Boosey & Hawkes | Text: Stacy Gnall
Flare is constantly in motion, a rhythmic race "through trees with bursting limbs" that drives toward the last line: “big brother, I am catching up to you.” This piece was commissioned by the 32 choruses of the ACDA Women's Commission Consortium.
SSA Chorus & Harp (or Piano) | 5.5' | Graphite
Text: Hildegard of Bingen, adapted by the composer
Here, a secular erasure of Hildegard's Ave Generosa text celebrates Hildegard herself and all women, regardless of their faith.
