Hello and welcome to my website
Thank you very much for showing interest in my undertakings and I invite you to browse through the various sections at your leisure.
As a start, I was born in Adelaide, South Australia, later graduated with my music degrees at the Elder Conservatorium, University of Adelaide and shortly afterwards moved to Switzerland.
Years later, in 2009, I unexpectedly began composing, writing song texts and poetry and thanks to many supportive colleagues have since been able to have my works performed, recorded, produced, published and distributed.
A collection of works can also be found online, via CD, sheet music or on YouTube with Susannah Snow’s Channel.
Hoping you enjoy my music,
November News in 2020
This month I begin the All Saints Day weekend with church services in Zürich, Kleinwangen and Beromünster, singing and playing the organ / piano and will then continue with teaching the piano on school’s premises, working further on various projects and looking forward to the arrival of newly published sheet music.
In the meantime I share a poem with you which I wrote on the 10th of April, 2020 and which then became a song, I sang it at the piano during the first lockdown:
Let the tines of the present woes of mankind
Remind us of the crown of thorns which Christ bore for us
And may the threads of this pandemic soon be conquered
As the Resurrection of Christ brings the hope of new life to the faithful
Then let there be the promise of a unified breath of oneness
Which will be that to spread throughout the nations
To save our flora and fauna and teach us again to care for all
Which spans from the bed of the sea extending towards the heavens
So that our children can also be grateful
For what the Almighty has bestowed upon us.
Chorus for song version:
Let us be one, under the sun,
Unity won, God’s plan is done.
Susannah Snow, 10.4.20

I have dedicated this song cycle to Angela Rosengart, Martina Kral and Carmela Konrad, in gratitude for their support and collaboration, especially in the year of 2017 when this work was created and in 2018 when it was recorded.
