Overheard on a Saltmarsh
for SATB a cappella (1990)
by Ron Hannah


Words: Harold Munro (1879-1932)
Duration: about 3 minutes

    This is a peculiar little poem by Harold Monro about a goblin trying to persuade a nymph to give him a jewel she has stolen "out of the moon". It will require a good and sensitive choir to bring it off - one which is not afraid to hiss and howl. Being basically tonal, with expressive and quite dissonant and avant-garde moments, it will well reward the effort of a good amateur choir. It has not yet been performed.
