Be Music, Night

Eliza Allen

Grade 12, George Mason High School

"This is my SATB a cappella choral number, with lyrics from the beautiful poem, "Be Music, Night" by Kenneth Patchen. I was inspired by the many hymnal numbers my family and I have performed and participated in, and my love of choral music. I was especially excited to record with my family a piece I composed myself. This started as a simple lullaby but grew to be a strong, but elegant number with voices that have their own character that come together well to perform beautiful harmonies. I learned so much about harmonies and creative techniques through this process, as well as my preferences in these subjects. Enjoy! "
