I Had No Time to Hate [SATB]


A timeless statement of tolerance and love is brought to life in this approachable setting by Nathan Howe. The message and music are ideal for high school and college choirs.

The beautiful text by Emily Dickinson is strikingly relevant today:

I HAD no time to hate, because
The grave would hinder me,
And life was not so ample I
Could finish enmity.

Nor had I time to love; but since
Some industry must be,
The little toil of love, I thought,
Was large enough for me.

Why Not? [SA, SAB, or Double Choir SA/SATB]

Why Not?

Why Not? was commissioned as a combined piece celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Greeley Children’s Chorale and the 50th anniversary of the Greeley Chorale. The playful lyrics look forward to various stages of life, imagining the amazing things that will surely happen in the future. However, the dreaming always leads back to the question, “Why not just be happy now?”

With a rollicking 4-hand piano accompaniment, this accessible piece for young voices is available in its original double choir voicing (Unison or 2-part children’s chorus with SATB chorus), a two-part treble voicing, and an SAB mixed choir voicing. The double-choir version is terrific for district-wide festivals with varying ages of singers, the SAB version is ideal for middle school and high school choirs,  and the 2-part treble version is ideal for children’s choirs and women’s choirs through early high school.

Why Not? is available through MusicSpoke.
