Choral Compositions by Ken Galbreath
SATB, a cappella and SSAA, piano and flute
"I love the poetry of Jane Mayes, a distinguished poet and artist from Port Austin, Michigan. Beachwalk, a thought-provoking, cleverly crafted inspiring text, is the seventh and most recent Jane Mayes poem that I have set to choral music. I hope to do many more. The SSAA voicing was composed for the 2004 University of Michigan-Flint Summer Music Academy and performed by the Women's Ensemble, directed by my wife, DeeAnn. I have since written an SATB a cappella setting for her 16-voice high school ensemble. For college, advanced-level high school and community choirs."
