|Do Not Stand at my Grave and
Scored for three part Women's chorus, viola, cello, Irish tin whistle (flute), and harp,
this is a subtle and straightfoward setting siutable for intermediate to advanced choirs
from 6 to 36 voices.
After writing An Irish Blessing in the same style and for the same ensemble as In Flanders Fields, I decided to bring this series of women's choir pieces to a close by setting the well known anonymous poem, Do Not Stand at my Grave and Weep. The pieces work alone, but in the context of a trilogy, present the universal themes of challenge, loss, and redemption.
