The first “face” is foot-stomping fun with a fiddle leading a hoe-down parade, followed by a second gentler lullaby “face” that puts the piece to rest.

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came--
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.

The Chestnuts came in yellow,
The Oaks in crimson dressed;
The lovely Misses Maple
In scarlet looked their best;
All balanced to their partners,
And gaily fluttered by;
The sight was like a rainbow
New fallen from the sky.

Then, in the rustic hollow,
At hide-and-seek they played,
The party closed at sundown,
And everybody stayed.
Professor Wind played louder;
They flew along the ground;
And then the party ended
In jolly "hands around."

II - The Hush Before Winter, by Christopher Fox (1975-pres.)

Mother tucks her baby in
With a quilt made of many colors.
She sings a lullaby to her
As a hush falls before the slumber.

October's Party, by George Cooper, 1840-1927
included in "School Record: Volume 6, Issue 2," 1897

"My kids LOVED this piece! We performed it at the VOKE Children's Choral Festival in 2019 and they liked it so much that they wanted to keep it our our repertoire for the rest of the year."
review by: Sarah Riechers, Manassas, VA - Marshall Elementary School

"My students absolutely loved this piece! It has body percussion, really pretty harmonies that sound sophisticated, and a nice addition of percussion instruments. Stylistically, it offers something lively and something somber that reflect Autumn's appeal."
review by: Lisa, Springfield, VA - VOKE Honor Choir
