This piece is meant to evoke visions of flourishing and blossoming flora (the piano part), over which the singers soar blissfully above. It is a setting of the poem of the same name by Janet Mason, and was commissioned in her honour by the Timothy Eaton Memorial Church Choir in Toronto, of which she has been a chorister for several decades.
The radiance of Spring awakens
The warmth and tenderness of life.
Buds and greening fill the eye.
With joy we feast upon thy splendour.
Our lives they are renewed, restored
And our souls they are refreshed,
But that we could forever dwell
In the springtime of thy world.
