Celestial Song

Series: Windependence Apprentice Advanced Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes Score & Parts Composer: Robert Spittal

Level: 3

Composer Robert Spittal was moved to complete this work in response to the Newtown, CT tragedy in 2012, and serves as a reflection of our complicated feelings of grief and loss. The music is simple and direct, and meant as a hopeful work for young players. Moved by a metaphor describing the victims as “twenty-six new diamonds in the sky” the title is a reference to the stars which we look upward to for inspiration, for hope, and to dream of better things to come.
