Yuki -Snow- (For SATB Chorus)

Composer: Ko Matsushita
Lyricist: Minori Minazuki

 

Words from composer:

Up until now, I have written several different versions of this song for many different occasions. Now, I am very glad to announce that this little choral piece is going to be published. I composed this piece with everyone, from children to the elderly, in mind so can sing it comfortably.

The poem was written by Mr. Minori Minazuki, a respected friend of mine.
The beautiful words “‘To warm this chilled body,’ memories fall like flower petals in the form of snow,” moved me to write the piece in G-flat major.

In addition, the beauty of the Japanese language that abounds in this poem unravels the image of a piano motif. They are reminiscent of a certain scene for the performer.
