The Tide Rises, the Tide Falls (2011)
SATB and piano
The Tide Rises, the Tide Falls is a colourful response to Longfellow’s imaginative poem which depicts life and death through the image of the continual ebb and flow of the tide, watched by a traveller on the seashore. The music clothes the poetry with poignant rising and falling phrases supported by rich harmony and a flowing piano part.
It is a movement from Bullard’s cantata Travelling Tales, also published by Colne Edition.
