Duration: 2 minutes

Text by Sappho. Premiere: March 2001, Eastman Chorale (Rochester, NY)
This short work for chorus and piano is an arrangement of the second song from Three Aphorisms for Soprano and Piano. I wanted to capture the spaciousness of Sappho’s brief lines in the spare choral writing and in the piano’s declamations.
