for SATB with piano
The Tennyson poem lauds the many soothing values of music. The composer first created tranquil music emblematic of the text, and then, repeating the words “music here,” gradually takes us to great heights for the ending, bringing this celebration of music to a dramatic close. With divisi only at the ending, this special piece can be enjoyed by choirs of any size. Read more about the composer’s inspiration here.
