Who can sail without the wind?

composer
2013; arrangement of the Swedish folk song Vem kan segla förutan vind?; originally for upper voices; SATB English version made for Stephen Layton and Trinity College Choir Cambridge
author of text
Swedish folksong

 
The brief Who can sail without the wind? is a folk-based piece, an arrangement of the very popular Swedish song Vem kan segla förutan vind?. Originally premiered by the upper voices of the Netherlands Children’s Choir, this English-language version for full choir was made for Stephen Layton and Trinity College Choir. A lilting, arpeggiated harp accompaniment is the unobtrusive foil to a quietly homophonic telling of the folk tale.
