My heart is like a singing bird


SABar (with optional Bass) and piano
Duration: 2 minutes | Difficulty: Easy

Higgins’s setting explores the vibrant, natural imagery in Rossetti’s text with flowing melodic lines and warm harmonies. The elegant piano accompaniment is characterised throughout by quick demisemiquaver flourishes, as though painting an aural portrait of the ‘singing bird’.
