A Winter Dawn is a piece for a cappella SATB chorus composed as a musical response to the poem of the same name by L.M. Montgomery (1874-1942). It attempts to use musical ideas in a way that evokes feelings of both physical and spiritual awakening, amidst imagery of snow, wind, and sky.
L.M. Montgomery (1874-1942)
A Winter Dawn
Above the marge of night a star still shines,
And on the frosty hills the sombre pines
Harbour an eerie wind that crooneth low
Over the glimmering wastes of virgin snow.
Through the pale arch of orient the morn
Comes in a milk-white splendor newly-born,
A sword of crimson cuts in twain the gray
Banners of shadow hosts, and lo, the day!
