Extent: 1 item

Description
This piece is written for a 5-part choir, and is subtitled as An Environmental Elegy. On the front, Tate has handwritten an exerpt from the poem Summer by Alexander Pope, which is the same exerpt used by Handel in his song Where 'er You Walk, hence the title. Tate's version, however, reworks the beautiful lyrics to depict ugly modern surroundings, talking of 'foul fumes', 'concrete' and 'pylons'. Instrumentation: Soprano, Also, Tenor, Baritone, Bass
