The 17th century poem by Robert Herrick forms the basis for this lovely setting. The solo opening is taken up by the choir in a gently imitative way, followed by a contrasting middle section that reflects the imagery portrayed in the text. Finally, the music modulates and the rich choral textures bring the work to a fulfilling conclusion. Available separately: SATB/Solo, SAB/Solo, SSA/Solo, ChoirTrax CD. Chamber Orchestra score and parts available as a printed edition and as a digital download (fl 1-2, ob, cl 1-2, bn, perc 1-3, hp, vn 1-2, va, vc, db). Duration: ca. 3:45.

    This arrangement of the 17th century poem by Robert Herrick is one of the most beautiful pieces of music I have come across. I direct a church choir and this is within the reach of the unprofessional singer.
