Michael J. Mills: Bio and other works | Jo-Michael Scheibe Choral Series
voicing: SATB div. | catalog number: SBMP 994 | duration: 3:50 | price: $2.10
accompaniment: a cappella

Winner of the 2010 American Choral Directors Association Raymond W. Brock Memorial Student Composition Contest, the piece was premiered to great acclaim at the 2011 ACDA National Convention. Set to a poem by Alfred Tennyson, the poet used the metaphor of an ocean sand bar to describe the barrier between life and death. In order to reach the shore, the ocean waves must crash against the sandbar, creating a sound that Tennyson describes as the “moaning of the bar.” Mills dramatically captures this text. An elegant piece for the mature choir.
