A 4-minute work for SSAATTBB unaccompanied choir. Esenvalds’ rich harmonic texture and colour emphasises nature’s beauty. Sara Teasdale’s poem conveys this the beauty and peace, whilst contrasting with the challenges posed by humankind: “Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree, If mankind perished utterly.”
Commissioned by the University of Louisville Choral Department, Kent Hatteberg, Director of Choral Activities.
