Boosey & Hawkes
SSAATTBB a cappella
Zephyr Rounds was the winner of the 2007 Yale Glee Club Emerging Composers Competition. The asymmetry of the 13/8 time signature creates a bustling feeling of perpetual motion, blossoming into a thick texture of contrapuntal exchanges and melodic hocket between voices. The result is an infectious rhythmic energy unusual in a piece for a cappella chorus. Duration: ca. 5:50.
