Garden of Roses COVER-FULL

A Garden of Roses – for SATB chorus and string quartet

ca. 40 mins.

Program Note:

A Garden of Roses, a ­­­­­­cycle for chorus and string quartet, centers on American and English poems on the theme of roses.  These flowers have served as symbols of the human condition—from life and love to sorrow and death.  The work is available for chorus and string quartet (12 mvmts.), quartet alone (six qt. mvmts.), or a piano/vocal score (six choral mvmts.) that will also work with the choral/quartet version. A Garden of Roses was commissioned and premiered in partnership with the Spokane Kantorei Choir and the Spokane String Quartet, led by conductor Timothy Westerhaus.

The choral and the string movements can be performed separately as suites of six movements each.
