Commissioned by The Concordia Singers of the Nittany Valley Children's Choir (Lou Ann Shafer, director), The Hall sets Mark A. Boyle's eponymous poem, in which the image of walking down a crowded school hallway serves both as a metaphor for the passage from adolescence to adulthood and as a reminder of the importance of compassion. Featuring a vivacious and churning piano accompaniment, The Hall makes a highly effective program opener or closer. Originally for SSA & piano. SSAA & piano. 8.5"x11". Duration 4'.See the Score
