for SATB (with divisions) unaccompanied Setting a text by Walter de la Mare, this tuneful, rhythmic choral work is infused with Scandinavian style. The poem is accompanied by extensive use of scat, giving a modern twist to the forlorn sentiments of the text. An ideal concert work for experienced choirs looking for something a little different.
Jussi Chydenius (b.1972)
"The Finnish singer and composer Jussi Chydenius offers something different that may just get under your skin . . . Autumn, which sets a poem of Hardy-esque fatalism by Walter de la Mare, has a folky, hypnotic quality that fully captures the poem's darkness." - Matthew Greenall, The Singer, May 2011
