Trees – Backing Track

View Fiona Lander's Full Store

This piece was commissioned by Beaconsfield Festival of Choirs in 2023 and was performed by 30 different choirs in March 2024. I was asked to compose something based on a text in the public domain which would work for all the main choir combinations SATB, SSA, TBB plus treble voices only for schools to sing.
I really enjoyed setting this poem by Walter De La Mare for voices to sing. The descriptive nature of each of the trees really captured my imagination and helped create the song. With an English folky feel and some inspiration from Benjamin Britten, the composition developed naturally with verse 4 providing the perfect opportunity for a contrasting more reflective moment. It’s a short piece with piano accompaniment which might make a lovely light-hearted addition to a concert. I couldn’t resist adding a hint of the Teddy Bear’s Picnic along the way!

This download can be purchased in addition to either the sheet music or learning tracks of this piece as a single licence for any choirs without an accompanist.
