In this lush setting of Emily Dickinson's poem "These are the days when Birds come back," the text refers to a period of Indian Summer (perhaps even after a snowfall). Set for mezzo-soprano solo, 8 violoncelli, SATB chorus (divisi), and organ, the composer achieves some remarkable textures and moods. The choral rehearsal score has a piano reduction of the instrumentation. Duration: 15:00.
