This is a beautifully crafted a cappella work for SATB Choir (divisi: 2 Soprano, 2 Alto, 2 Tenor, 2 Bass). The music was originally composed to set the words of Robert Frost's poem Stopping By Woods, but owing to complex legalities involving the poet's estate the work had to be withdrawn. The composer, after long deliberation, decided to ask his friend and brilliant poet, Charles Anthony Silvestri, to set new words with the exact structure of the Frost poem.

Rating Review
Customer Rating This is a beautiful piece of vocal composition. It is powerful enough to bring tears to my eyes and give me chills every time I hear it. It has a relatively advanced skill level but it is well worth what the piece has to offer. The divisi in this piece are done magically. Sleep is an amazing piece even with the word changes from Robert Frosts' Stopping By woods.

Customer Rating Beautiful, melodic and contemporary.
Lightening Conductor

Customer Rating Great selection of songs from this inspirational composer - thanks.

Customer Rating I first heard this on Classic FM and I have now purchased copies for the Rushley Singers in Morecambe. It is quite simply one of the finest pieces of choral music I have ever heard. I make a point of playing the piece on the CD at least once a day and I cannot get over the harmonies and the range of expressions used. It is just FANTASTIC and I would recommend it to any capable choir

Customer Rating Lush! I hope my choir can do it justice. As usual, the item arrived in good time and in perfect condition. Thanks.

Customer Rating Another great item which I'm looking forward to learning
