Hymn To The Night – SATB divisi
This well-known poem by Longfellow metaphorically paints the calming qualities of the night. What Richard Burchard does musically is enrapturing. The listener is immersed sonically into the poem even deeper. It is an obvious concert closer but stands well at other times too. Eight-part a cappella choir and tenor soloist will work best with advanced high school, college or community choirs. Medium difficulty.
