Date: May 14, 2013
I am pleased to present the new recording of Portland Vocal Consort's April performance of Song of the Mountains, my SATB setting of text by American naturalist John Muir. You may listen on my website: www.gregbartholomew.com/mountainsindex.html
The webpage also includes the complete text and performance history as well links to download a free perusal score and to purchase scores.
Song of the Mountains was commissioned for the Combined Choirs of St. Joseph's School, Seattle, directed by Rick Boyle, who premiered the piece at Benaroya Hall's Nordstrom Recital Hall in Seattle on May 6, 2004. The piece was revised in 2007 and the premiere of the revised score was given on November 16, 2007, by the Queens College Chorus, Cindy Bell conducting, at the Aaron Copland School of Music in New York.
