Anthem for church choir


by Joyce Kilmer

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

Darren Schmidt is an award-winning composer and performer from Baltimore, MD. Since graduating from Towson University, Schmidt has continued to add to his diverse collection of pieces (ranging from solo and chamber works up to full choir and symphonic band). His ample firsthand experience as a singer, F Horn player, and ensemble leader allows him to understand music from multiple perspectives: audience, performer, and director. The kind of music he loves most is honest, approachable, and compelling; it has the ability to reach out and meet people where they are. Schmidt endeavors to create engaging, meaningful, and enjoyable music that resonates with people from all walks of life. When he’s not composing, Schmidt enjoys performing with his barbershop quartet Pratt Street Power, and the 229th Army Band.
