This setting of the familiar Sara Teasdale poem often titled “Life Has Loveliness to Sell” is well written for middle school and junior high voices. Harmonies, created in various ways, make each part interesting to sing. The possibility for discussions on the text is reason enough to work through this piece. There are interesting changes in dynamics and phrasing that can also be great teaching tools.
