If I Can Sing

SATB with piano

Moderately Challenging

Premiered at the Bay Area Choral Institute, Robert Geary, Artistic Director

Poetry by Sara Teasdale
 

From my spirit’s gray defeat,    
From my pulse’s flagging beat,    
From my hopes that turned to sand    
Sifting through my close-clenched hand,    
From my own fault’s slavery,
If I can sing, I still am free.    
 
For with my singing I can make    
A refuge for my spirit’s sake,    
A house of shining words, to be    
My fragile immortality.

Poetry by Walt Whitman.

 

As he observes the efforts of a spider to spin its web, Whitman comments on the theme of isolation and our need to find belonging in the universe and to secure an anchor for the soul.

Res Miranda

SATB div. with piano

Moderately Challenging

A haunting setting of the Christmas poem by 18th century author, Thomas Pestel.

Behold the great Creator makes
Himself a house of clay,
a robe of virgin flesh he takes
which he will wear today.

Hark, how the wise eternal Word,
like a an infant cries!
In form of servant now the Lord,
our God in cradle lies.
