“In a Railroad Station” paints Sara Teasdale's text into the fabric of the music. The relentlessly busy piano part is the “shrill electric light,” the “whirling din.” The drawn-out melodic lines sung by the choir depict the slow-motion farewell that is occurring between two people as chaos swirls around them. Duration: 3 minutes 10 seconds.
