Description

A lighthearted setting of "The Heart of the Tree" to reflect the innocent optimism prevalent in the text. The consonant melodic lines and predictable harmonies support the feeling of a “nursery rhyme for adults". Perfect for any nature-themed concert or Earth Day/Arbor Day celebration.
