Welcome Lovely Spring
2. O Lovely Dove

For children's choir (SSAA) a cappella. Text by Francesco Petrarca. English.

This is the most haunting and lyrical of the songs that make up Welcome Lovely Spring. Meter changes, elongated triplets, and syncopation provide rhythmic variety. In three sections, this piece employs overlapping legato entries marked by mild dissonance. This piece is a model of expressive writing and sung sensitively, will be moving both to audiences and performers.
