Words from Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
With rich, lush harmonies, mixed meter, and a lovely oboe obbligato, the music follows the wide-ranging emotions of the text in this exquisite composition. “To Everything There Is a Season” has been set by numerous composers, but René Clausen masterfully approaches this well-known scripture by enhancing the many moods of the lyric with color, text painting, and gently shifting meter as no one else can. Very moving.
