David Bednall: The Cloths Of Heaven

Books | SATB

Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes
Composer: David Bednall
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

Originally part of David Bednall’s Three Songs of Love, the short section which sets W B Yeats’ poem The Cloths of Heaven (‘Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths’) is here presented as a separate octavo publication.

The warmth and passion of the text is portrayed in the highly expressive music, which is tied very closely to the words, with lavish harmonies presented in homophony with frequent divisi. This song, like the complete Three Songs of Love, will present a mild challenge to intermediate choirs, but it is sure to be pleasing to both singers and audiences and an excellent addition to the contemporary repertoire.
