An offering from one of Minnesota’s leading composers, this work poignantly sets the beloved poem by Robert Frost with thoughtfulness and a Romantic harmonic language supported by the piano writing. Though not one of René’s most well-known works, choirs and audiences will be moved by the marriage of words and music, and a sense of nostalgia that permeates throughout. Well worth a look!
