Cornucopia (1997) is an easy work in three sections plus a coda, for upper voices and chamber orchestral accompaniment, but can also be performed with piano alone. It is suitable for upper-voice choirs of all ages; the music sometimes divides into two parts, and there is simple canonic writing in at least two of the numbers.
The twelve songs can be sung in many different ways: in the printed order (as a complete work), separately or as a selection sung in any order you like. Six of the songs have rather long instrumental codas which could be omitted if the songs are performed separately. Directions for these cuts are given in the Composer’s Note at the back of the score.
