Crossing the Bar (Digital PDF)

Voicing: SATB, TTBB, or SSA, and piano

Duration: 3' 00"


A lyrical setting of Tennyson's farewell poem.


The original TTBB version of this work won the 2014 Cornwall International Male Voice Choral Festival composition competition. Adjudicator Alan Bullard called it 'An effective and moving work which represents the best of the Male Voice Choir tradition'.


The SATB and SSA versions capture all the lyrical qualities of the original voicing.


A moving-score video of the SATB arrangement is available - select the final image above and a virtual choir video of Epsom Male Voice Choir performing the piece during Covid lockdown is available on YouTube.
