Stars Were Gleaming
for SATB Chorus and Piano
I love Nancy Turner’s unassuming, childlike text. To round out the setting, I added another verse (following her lead) and inserted a simple, unison “Alleluia” section to help extend the piece. The choral parts are mostly unison with a repeated chorus built upon the rich and interesting harmonies suggested by the original Polish carol—ah, that singing!
