Within your ensemble's instrumentation, please try to assign parts as close to the SATB structure as possible

(where S = Part 1, A = Part 2, etc.)

*Note: This arrangement does include string parts, but please note that the key signature is D-flat major. I know

this is not a "string-friendly" key, but artistic integrity is important to me for this particular piece! Treat this as an

opportunity to learn to play in new keys!

Duration: ~3 minutes

This piece was originally composed for SATB choir in and then transcribed for concert band. The choral version

features original text inspired by seasonal scenic imagery.

TEXT:

The sun hides

low in the sky

igniting the forest

with rays of light.

The air lies motionless

until a gentle wind whispers,

disrupting this peace.

With this wind

dances a colourful melancholy,

painting the seasons

with brushstrokes of time.

Memories swirl

in this cool breeze,

though warmth lingers

in the arms of trees

holding on

until the last single leaf falls.
