Using the image of barley bending in the breezes to represent overcoming struggle and adversity, poet Sara Teasdale has created a pastoral and optimistic poem. This move from pain to joy is echoed in the music, with the feisty and exuberant rhythms and harmonies of Latin jazz.
Change My Sorrow into Song
Here is a high energy piece suitable for either the concert stage or the sanctuary. Body percussion adds energy and the gospel style piano accompaniment drives it all to a powerful conclusion.
Written as a celebration of singing for racial and social justice this powerful work sets the 11th stanza of the Langston Hughes poem Freedom's Plow. Opening with a quote from America (My Country, 'Tis of Thee), the listener is reminded of one of America's most important ideals - freedom. This wo
America, the Dream
An uplifting, 6/8 gospel feel propels this original to soaring heights. Phrases were offered by school children and the composer crafted and connected them into a powerful message. Just when you think all has been said, a powerful rendition of This Little Light of Mine enters for a moving conclus
Let Peace and Love Shine Through
Combing two African-American spirituals - When the Train Comes Along and The Gospel Train - with additional lyrics by the composer, this song is exactly what we have come to expect from Rollo Dilworth. A great piano accompaniment, vocal ranges that are totally appropriate, dynamic and creative ch
When the Train Comes Along

When Dreams Take Flight
Exploring the essence of the butterfly and its impact on nature, the tonalities shift with each passing phrase in the music. Consequently, each line of the text has its own character. This inspired text painting encourages singers to explore vocal colors to support the delivery of the text.
The Soul of a Butterfly
Beginning with breath as the only sound, then moving into a slow and legato rubato intro. This is one of the most creative treatments of Psalm 150. Sung in Spanish with excellent IPA and translation guides. A cappella with hand percussion create a Latin flavor that will have everyone dancing.
This text welcomes the long-awaited arrival of the railway system and the benefits it will bring, bidding good riddance to the slow, rough-riding stage coaches of the era. The music has a folk-inspired melody while utilizing contemporary harmony and voice leading. The piano part changes throughou
Along the Western Railroad
This contemporary composition enhances the original lined-spiritual with great rhythmic drive, text painting and lush harmonies. It is a great addition to Christmas literature, though it could easily find its way into programs year-round.
Rock de Cradle Mary
Here is a flexible composition with many uses. Although speaking of the Virgin Birth, its message far exceeds the season of Christmas. It speaks of the struggle often associated with the great promises of God. Scored for SATB choir and soloist, it can be performed without a soloist as an SATB ant
The Birth of a Promise
With a text based on Psalm 150, this a cappella anthem draws on elements from the African-American spiritual, jazz and gospel traditions. The opening four measures are contemplative but then the music shifts to upbeat and declamatory as the basses lay down an ostinato pattern upon which the tenor
All That Hath Life and Breath
Written by the Puerto Rican song writing legend Rafael Hernandez Marin, here is a jazzy, concert setting of one of his most famous pieces.

Here is a traditional Latin Christmas text beautifully set. Both the joy and the passion of the new born baby is captured in this lush new composition. An optional string quartet is available to add sparkle to your program.

Il Est Bel et Bon
Here is a majestic anthem in celebration of diversity, equity, inclusion, and access to one's purpose and destiny. With a text by celebrated poet, author and activist Maya Angelou, composer Rollo Dilworth has written a piece for the 2021 ACDA National SSAA High School/Collegiate Honor Choir that
On the Pulse of This New Day
This short minute-long work is joyous, enthusiastic, and full of expression - a whirlwind ride for any chorus, full of agile rhythms, lots of words and great positive emotions. A superb closer for better high schools, collegiate and adult choirs!
This buoyant madrigal-like setting of the Thomas Hood text offers a wonderful opportunity for choirs to practice light and articulate singing. There is wonderful contrast between the lively passages and lyrical, legato sections making wonderful contrasts.
The Time of Roses
With lyricism and sonority, this is the perfect concert closer or graduation song, easily-learned and yet full and lush with immaculate craftsmanship.
An Old Irish Blessing
With a Portuguese text and rhythms in the popular Brazilian groove known as Capoeira, this song of celebration begins with all voice parts emulating rhythm instruments. If all goes well, a dance just might break out in the auditorium during the performance.
This jaunty little work is on a text from William Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost, one of his earliest comedies. The tongue-in-cheek text talks of married life and the woe that comes from being unable to pursue the frolicsome fruits of spring. Keeping with the profile of the Rollo Dilworth Cho
This contemporary spiritual setting combines a familiar spiritual with a Biblical text from the book of Matthew. Featuring a first and last section with marked rhythms and heavy accents, the middle section is rubato and expressive. The contrast should be stark.
Sit Down, Servant
Here is a festive and rhythmic celebration. The title invokes Peru's most popular folk rhythm which was brought to life by salves who were working in the mines and fields of Peru. Composer Diana Saez has become well known as someone who brings authentic style to the music of Latin America for cho
