Product Description

A cappella SATB choir; ca. 3 min; can be paired with Cast Off All Doubtful Care (2012).

The composer writes: I chose to set four of the five stanzas of Christina Rossettis famous text of 1872 to music for two reasons. First, I liked the poem. I was attracted to Rossettis profound metaphysical imagery, curiously and yet comfortably wedded to a kind of Pre-Raphaelite simplicity.
The second reason was because I had never heard any of the previous settings of this poem. I was aware that Gustav Holst, Benjamin Britten, Harold Darke and others had composed settings of the text, but it was only after I had written my own version that I listened to these works. I saw my ignorance as a virtue, as it meant that I would not be unduly influenced by those who had gone before me.
