Do Not Stand At My Grave

Based on a native american text, this setting of “Do Not Stand At My Grave” was written for our school Remembrance Day ceremony.  I really tried to do a lot of word painting, using the music to mirror the sentiments of the lyric.  The animation is provided by my colleague Sid Akselrod and his art students at Steveston-London Secondary. This song was published in folio form by Northwest Music and some copies are still available… it is scored for SAATB.
