“I Am in Need of Music” for mixed chorus and piano is dedicated to the memory of David Not, Director of Choral Activities at Illinois Wesleyan University, 1965-1995. The text by Elizabeth Bishop, to quote Dr. Brunner, “seems to sing itself off the page.” He is Director of Choral Activities at the University of Central Florida, Orlando, and a widely acclaimed composer. In the words of Dr. Brunner, “I wrote music that is reflective, lush and lyrical, with the text always foremost.” This octavo would be a great addition to any choral library.
