I’ve been commissioned to write a piece for the Regis University Collegium’s 10th anniversary concert, which will be this spring (April, I think). It’s going to be for SATB singers, recorders, dulcien (a precursor to the bassoon), and hand bells and will most likely be an arrangement and reinterpretation of “Sumer Is Icumen In,” the anonymous medieval round/partsong. It’s a fun challenge to think about how I want to make a piece for student and community volunteers that is both accessible and interesting. I really enjoy arranging earlier music, and this tune is particularly charming. Check out the original version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOpcyFz4cw4
