for SAATBB unaccompanied This touching piece sets Yeats' beautiful words describing the love of a parent for their child.

This is an impressive and sophisticated debut from Swedish singer and composer Joel Nilson.

An alternative setting of the same text, to original music by John Rutter, is also available from Oxford University Press.

for SSATB and cello Night Flight was written to mark the centenary of Harriet Quimby's pioneering flight across the English channel. Setting texts by Sheila Bryer on the mysterious powers of the sea, earth, and air, McDowall uses vocal clusters and haunting solo cello lines to highlight the sense of fear, awe, and majesty experienced by an individual pitted against the elements. Cecilia McDowall was awarded the 2014 British Composer Award in the Choral category for Night Flight.
for SAATBB unaccompanied The signature tune for the award-winning Swedish a cappella group Vocado, this poignant love song is characterized by mixed messages: the lover wants to leave, but can't quite bring himself to walk out the door. The flavour of the music reflects the dilemma, with emotions ranging from muted acceptance in the verses to highly charged indecision in the passionate chorus. With classic a cappella rhythms and textures, along with melodies that will stay with you for days, this dual-language publication in the Voice Junction series is perfect for vocal groups and choirs singing in Swedish or English. Hall mig kvar has been recorded by Vocado on the CD 'Northern Lights'.

This edition features the complete revised book and lyrics for the production, colour production photographs, and an introduction by Sondheim's biographer David Benedict.
