The SATB version of this piece was commissioned by Marietta College Choir, Marietta, Ohio, Daniel Monek, Director. The poetry of Sara Teasdale is a favorite choice for Stephen Chatman. Similar in sound world and mood to his setting of The Tree of Song by the same poet (#7.0612 - SATB), the composer paints another Teasdale poem about love and death with sweeping melodies and rich harmonies.
