The Red Wheelbarrow

This is a woodwind quartet transcription of a choral setting of William Carlos Williams’ poem The Red Wheelbarrow. I think it works better with a woodwind ensemble than with voices. Listen for “So much…”, the chickens, and the rain (text below).

So much depends
upon a red wheelbarrow
glazed with rainwater
beside the white chickens.

The poem is in public domain.

(remastered recording 28 September 2017)
