Moon Songs

Notated Pieces

About Moon Songs

WomenSing commissioned Moon Songs as part of their Youth Inspiring Youth program, which encourages young composers to set the words of child poets (that’s children who are poets, not poets who write for children) from the River of Words collection. Instead of a single large piece I chose to write a collection of five short pieces on poetry by Ginny Drake, John Davies-Schley, Noah Jordan, Luis Castillo, and Alexa Beaver.

The middle movement, Reflection became a short piece of its own for SATB choir a few years later.
