There are very few works for soprano and grade 3 band. Thanks to Dr. Brett Richardson at the University of the Incarnate Word for leading a consortium of colleges and ensembles to commission this new 9 minute work. I think high school and college band conductors will find it to be accessible and artistically mature. What a joy it was to set these timeless Walt Whitman poems – Look Down Fair Moon, A Clear Midnight, and A Prairie Sunset.
