Four Seasons

A four-part choral work

SATB, a cappella

Music by Richard Link
Lyrics by Barry Thorson


Four Seasons is Richard’s latest choral work, a compelling retrospective that evokes joy and transition.

Richard writes:

“Filled with folk songs—Flunky Jim, Land of the Silver Birch, Good night, Irene—and memories and reflections, Four Seasons is my homage to my childhood on the Alberta Prairies.”

Like Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, this work is in four movements—one for each season.

“The style of music is what I call ‘traditional Canadian choral folk music’ reflected through my own particular jazz and world music sensibility.”

Written for a cappella SATB, the piece also incorporates simple clapping rhythms.
