The poignant lilt of the classic Scottish/Appalachian folk text "Black is the Color of my True Love's Hair" provides the inspiration for the sweet melody of this tender piece. Your choir is sure to love the harmonies as the melody weaves through richly textured chords. Each verse provides new insight into the heart of the beloved as they patiently wait for the passing of winter and for the greening of the leaves. This piece is written specifically to provide a comfortable tessitura for Unchanged, Stage I, and Stage II emerging tenor voices.
