Quick Overview

Based on Felix Mendelssohn's (1809-1847) famous art song On Wings of Song, this piece sets to music a beautiful love poem by Lynn Shaw Bailey about the ever-enchanting bird family, the loons. Franz Liszt (1811-1886) also contributed to this tune's popularity with a piano transcription of Mendelssohn's set in 6/8 meter. Developing treble voices will soar and sound fantastic singing "Loo hoo" as they call to the birds in this undulating melody. Highly recommended for any concert or festival performance.
