There Was No Spring
Also includes B-flat Bass Clarinet parts as substitutes for the bassoons. In 2022 we saw no spring in the region in which I live.
There were no wildflowers and rich green grasses covering
the meadows and pastures. Fields of winter wheat, planted
months before with the promise of spring rains, withered
and died under oppressive heat and no life-giving moisture.
This piece expresses the emotional “dryness” of missing spring.
And yet hope still lives because God is good.
For full orchestra, score and parts.
