Alfred Publishing, 46417, TTBB, $1.90 2017 A folk-like setting of Maya Angelou’s empowering poem, which compares a bird’s longing to be liberated with that of all people. Hayes chooses a minor key with plenty of harmonic tension and a walking tempo that suggests the footsteps of those who have come before. The final Picardy third is the ultimate symbol of freedom.
