ALLAN BEVAN, CANADIAN COMPOSER
I'm proud to announce that Cypress Choral Music of Vancouver will be releasing new works of mine over the next while. The new publications include two new works as well as re-voicings of two of my older 'standards'. The new works are "Evening Song" for SATB and piano, and "Yeat's Cradle Song" for SA and piano on a charming text by the great Irish poet, William Butler Yeats. More information on "Evening Song" can be found in the blog entry below this one, and the score can be viewed, and a wonderful recording of the piece by Pro Coro Canada can be heard at the Cypress website.
I'm pleased to say that after twenty some years following their original publication, I have circled back to my "To Morning" and "Ave Maria" (both originally scored for treble voices) and produced SATB and TTBB versions of both pieces. These will be made available by Cypress in the winter of 2024. I completed the rescoring of these in the fall of 2023 and I will be looking forward to hearing these in the near future. More on their release dates coming soon!
