Peter Assad composed both the text and music for this madrigal. The text can stand for the uniqueness of a snowflake as the title dictates, or metaphorically for someone else as perhaps the dedication to his wife connotes. The gentle harmonies depict a style reminiscent of the early 20th century and the word painting is tender and clear. Advanced high school, college and community choirs will enjoy this lovely piece in winter concerts or whenever snowflakes are near. Medium difficulty.
