Singing Round 223 – I Shall Smile

This choral round’s text comes from a sad poem by Emily Brontë:

Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night’s decay
Ushers in a drearier day.
Here I’ve set it as something of a waltz with an optional 3rd part.  You can sing this round as 12 bars or 8 in two parts, or sing in 3 parts of all 12 bars.
Enjoy music today!
