Softly There Falls The Silver Rain


Kathleen Allan


• for SATB acapella

• Text from the poem “Before a Shower” by Marjorie Pickthall

• for advanced choirs


A beautiful new setting of the iconic Pickthall poem, this piece utilises rubato phrasings and delicate word painting. This piece is only suitable for advanced choirs, as it has difficult passages using shifting tonal centers, divisi in all voice parts and an cappella setting.
