Howard Skempton: Orpheus With His Lute

Books | SATB

Composer: Howard Skempton
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

This is a simple and elegant miniature in characteristic Skempton style, with graceful choral homophony, seamlessly fluctuating time signatures, and hypnotic, meandering harmonies. The text, by William Shakespeare, is an homage to music, as Orpheus's singing makes the trees and mountains bow, and the sea hang its head and lay by.
