Buried Treasure is a setting of the text of the same name by Richard Le Gallienne set for unaccompanied SATB choir. On the surface, it describes a journey through the seasons – with the world hiding away as winter approaches, worrying about where they will find joy now, then in April finding their buried treasure again. These thoughts could also be applied to life and the emergence of community spirit and solidarity during the coronavirus pandemic.
The piece begins quiet and mournful, but gains in strength and positivity as the work continues. Buried Treasure is four minutes in length and was composed in July 2020.
