Afternoon on a Hill (full score)

50.00

As I approached this wonderful text by Millay, I couldn't help but to relate it with my own struggles with anxiety and depression. For me, the song is a small window into that moment in person's life when they realize that true happiness is possible. The piano opens the piece with a shy excitement, and when the chorus comes in, it quickly swells to unabashed joy.  In the B section, which contains the repeated "rise," it's almost as if the singer is noticing the small, beautiful details of life for the first time. At the song's conclusion, they "start down" the hill with upbeat determination.
