About

This short work was commissioned for the choir of Rosmini College in Auckland. Conductor Christine Treseder-Hallett, and Head of Music Sue Williams, asked for a work for male voices that was limited to three-part choir, with the possibility of some solos for featured voices. Once again I've turned to traditional spirituals from the African American tradition for my text. This short text is typical with its repeated refrain of 'bye and bye' and looks forward to a future time when 'every day will be Sunday'. The accompani-ment features a 'walking bass' against which the right hand has considerable syncopation.
