Though best known as a composer of music for orchestra and concert band, Frank Ticheli has also written a number of notable pieces for choral ensembles. Using a text by Sara Teasdale, There Will Be Rest features tasteful harmonic suspensions and rich choral textures which bring the work to life with a delicate beauty that perfectly expresses the spirit of the poem: “There will be rest and sure stars shining over the rooftops crowned with snow…” Scored for SATBB a cappella choir, this is a superb choice for concert appearances with more capable choirs any time of year. Listen to the full work here, and contact us for more notable choral repertoire choices. Shop Stanton’s for all your sheet music needs!
