Summer’s Hope is the third movement of a three-movement portrait of love, Songs of Summer for Caroline. The compelling text of Movement III brings conclusion to the story of Caroline told from the perspective of a young man who has spent his summer loving her. The challenges of love are portrayed in this through-composed piece that opens with an energetic tempo and lends itself to variations in meter and rhythm. Lush musical moments are juxtaposed with occasional discord until the piece ends in quiet reflection of “Caroline.” Your choir will enjoy singing Movement III separately or as the third movement of the complete set of three songs, which when performed together tell the complete story of one man’s summer love.
