Description

for SATB unaccompanied
The optional opening section, for which there is a graphic score, is spoken to texts by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and other esteemed poets and authors. The four sung movements which follow are conventionally notated and set to further texts by Longfellow, and they amply demonstrate the hallmarks of Skempton's extraordinarily skilful choral writing. Subtle word painting and masterful use of harmony reinforce the rich imagery conveyed in the texts, weaving together a work of considerable beauty and power. Immensely satisfying to sing, this piece is ideal for concert use.
