The Darkling Thrush

 

SATB choir and harp (4'40)

I originally composed The Darkling Thrush in 2018 for SSAA choir and harp for Polaris Vocal Ensemble and their conductor, Nicola Starkie. I later arranged the work for SATB choir and harp, and this version was shortlisted by Bristol Choral Society for their 2020 Mary Otty composition prize. An arrangement for SATB choir and piano is also available.

You can listen to a concert performance of the SSAA and harp version by Polaris Vocal Ensemble and harpist Ellie Turner on the SoundCloud player below.
