The Road for SATB Choir
Lyrics by Robert Louis Stevenson
Duration: 3:40 minutes
Co-written with the talented Samuel Reese, The Road takes the words of Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Vagabond and sets them to this bright, sonorous folk melody. Despite its inherent happiness, The Road, a deeply intimate piece for me, not only touches upon such emotions as nostalgia, regret, and a sense of overwhelmingness, but ultimately optimism – a passionate hope for the uncertain future.
