Faber Edition: Choral Signature Series
SATB divisi, a cappella>
Song of June is a setting of Wilfred Owen's wonderfully evocative 1914 poem about young love and summer days. Harvey's music captures the shimmering trees, warbling waterbrooks and swimmers 'carving through the sparkling cold' depicted in the poem. This powerfully sensual work is certain to make a lasting impression on singers and audiences alike.
The Faber Choral Signature Series introduces a wealth of new or recently written choral music to choirs in search of fresh repertoire. The series draws in a rich diversity of contemporary composers and includes both lighter and more challenging contemporary works, offering a thrilling array of varied styles.
