Melissa Dunphy’s Halcyon Days, written to a new text from her regular collaborator poet Jacqueline Goldfinger, creates a period of calm during winter storms where we reflect on what we have lost but rise up to face the new year with joy and grace. This version for TTBB unaccompanied choir is suitable for any winter concert. Halcyon Days was first commissioned by VOCES8, with this lower voice version commissioned by Chor Leoni.

Duration 3.5 minutes.

Level of difficulty: easy.
