Like a cozy sweater on a cold day, this original wintertime poem juxtaposes warmth with chills. Imagine the opening descending motive as the first falling flake and the eventual musical layers as accumulating snow. Each voice part sings in the sweet spot of their tessitura to garner rich choral tone. A harmonically vivid bridge creates contrast and offers a flurry of beauty in the piano, as singers realize the beautiful snowflakes are fleeting, "all too soon they fade away." Delicate yet deep, simple yet stunning.
