Danse Macabre

SATB/piano  – Walton Music Fall 2023

French; very fast-paced, high energy work.  Show piece for both the chorus and virtuosic pianist.   “Tap, tap tap – Death rhythmically taps a tomb with his heel… white skeletons flit across the gloom, running and leaping in playful glee until sunrise.  Then, they rush back to their “earthly homes” before being touched by the sun’s rays.
