Kubla Khan: Mixed Choir

Choral Score | Mixed Choir
Publisher Oxford University Press
Instrumentation SATB + accompaniment

Rebecca Clarke's Come, oh come, my life's delight for SATB.

for unaccompanied SATB to words by Thomas Campion.

This is a lilting take on the Elizabethan lute-song full of smooth Stanford-like nineteenth-century harmonies, exquisitely tempered with modal effects.

Rebecca Clarke was born in Harrow in 1886 and died in New York City in 1979. She was one of the finest Viola players of her day and a skilful composer who studied with Stanford at the Royal College of Music in London. Her output as a composer was small, comprising about 90 works, but all these pieces are brilliant and powerful. Her Piano Trio and Viola Sonata are often played and recorded, and are now widely regarded as masterpieces. However her songs are perhaps her finest body of works, and embrace a variety of styles from Blakean simplicity to brutal tragedy and outright farce. Rebecca Clarke's choral music was virtually unknown until Oxford University Press began to publish these works for the first time. She wrote for chorus and other vocal ensembles throughout virtually her whole career, from her earliest attempts at composition around 1906 to her final flowering in the 1940s, revising and recomposing until as late as 1976.
