For SATB (with divisions) and piano or chamber orchestra Rutter's charming piece sets a secular text by the composer that emphasises the significance of music and harmony in an ephemeral world. A simple accompaniment figure in the piano provides the backdrop to alternating unison and polyphonic verses that manage to capture both nostalgia for what was and optimism for what is to come.

  • April 21, 2017 The choir love it

    Our choir already have quite a few John Rutter songs and carols in our repertoire, but this was one I hadn't seen or heard before. Well, it has typical Rutter harmonies, a catchy and deceptively simple melodic line which is repeated throughout the piece, sometimes by the sopranos but...

    also sometimes by the men, with a key change or two built in to add interest. The piano accompaniment is beautifully flowing. After only one rehearsal, my choir love it, and I think it will become a really good piece for us to sing.
