Hauntingly beautiful and richly evocative, this choral reflection on a poem of Percy Bysshe Shelley is the work of one of America's most distinguished composers. The work is not at all difficult, and its dreamy accompaniment (for piano, or flute and guitar) enhances the mystical atmoshpere. A must-have work for concert choirs!

Anthem text
Music, when soft voices die,
vibrates in the memory.

Odours, when sweet violets sicken,
Live within the sense they quicken,

Rose leaves, when the rose is dead,
are heaped for the beloved's bed.

And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone,
Love itself shall slumber on.

-Percy Bysshe Shelley
