Description

The lyrical simplicity and delightfully unexpected chord changes are the key elements of what makes this piece such a success. The wistful, melancholy melodies and subtle ornaments beautifully capture the nostalgia and regret of the poem. A wonderful piece for community choirs or strong high school ensembles.
