Does anyone have suggestions for “Spring” or “Springtime” as a concert theme?May 10, 2019 at 3:09 am #591233
Michael A. GrayParticipant
For Spring-themed music, you might take a look at…
•Gabrieli, G: Lieto gordea a8
•Gershwin: Sing of spring
•Jeune: Rvecy venir du printans
•Marenzio: Gia torna
•Morley: Now is the month of Maying
•Purcell: In these delightful pleasant groves
•Vaughan-Williams: The Springtime of the year
•Weelkes: In pride of May
While you’re at it, you might also take a look at my own
•The Forward violet
•When I consider everything that grows
– both are for SAB & piano and are available for free at http://www.graymichael.com
Hope that helps!

What difficulty level are you looking for? SATB? Instrumentalists available or a cappella?
