Winner of Honorable Mention in the 2020 King's Singers New Music Prize, Marianne Forman's sparkling music sets James Weldon Johnson's text about singing through adversity:

"...and if the way grows darker still, shadowed by Sorrow's somber wing
with glad defiance in my throat, I pierce the darkness with a note, and sing... nights are dark, no days are long, while in my heart there swells a song,
and I can sing."

Deeply encouraging, and suitable for a variety of performance situations, especially as choirs work through the events of 2020. 

Also available for SATB chorus.

(Audio is piano-only; recording forthcoming.)
