The last autumn leaves freely descend during the short piano introduction, symbolic of the change from fall to winter. Two-part groups will luxuriate in the words of Rachel Field as presented in this sumptuous setting. As simple as a partner song, with two independent melodies that assemble into a delicate choral duet; as sophisticated as an art song, with haunting motives and passing dissonances. Crystalline chords, embedded into the mostly arpeggiated accompaniment, dazzle the ear and offer subtle support to treble voices of any age. Designed with the clarity and elegance that will make any ensemble sound impressive.
