Autumn/winter theme SA piece

Melodia Women's Choir of NYC is looking for one more piece to add to our fall 2014 program. We're specifically looking for a new piece about 3 minutes in length on the autmn/winter theme, preferrably secular. We would perform the premiere in NY in November. Up to 4 parts OK - with piano or acappella.
Please send the score and audio (MP3) to womenschoir(a)
Many thanks,
Jenny Clarke

You might look at Vintern Var Hård Op. 20 by Aulis Sallinen.  It's a bit short but sounds very nice with a few strings and doesn't get heard as much as it should...

Elgar's The Snow, for piano and two violins, SSA. We love singing this.

You might consider my Winter, Snow; SSA + piano, c. 3:00. There's an audio link at the Lorenz website, but no score to look at.
If you like what you hear, let me know at carol(a) and I will send you a perusal score.
Good luck with your search.
All best,
Carol Barnett

.... Looks an exciting task for an Englishman in Gloucestershire! When do you want it for and do you want the text about NY seasons or Gloucestershire? Regards, Michael Castle (

The poem "O Swallow, Swallow" by Tennyson, set for SSA and piano.   Easy, most experienced choirs could probably sight read it.   Limited range for Mezzo and Alto, but still interesting parts.    
Newly revised, originally part of Lovelife Dances for chorus and 4-hand piano.

Wintersong by Audrey Snyder is easy, very singable, and quite lovely. The text by Emily Brontë is secular.

"Autumn Gives Her Hand to Winter" by Keith Loftis is a lovely piece. Usually performed in two parts by children's choirs, but who says the kids get to have all the fun? It's simple, beautifully written, and effective. It doesn't eactly match the description of what you are looking for, but it is worth knowing about nonetheless.
