Setting of a poem by Marie Keyser, for two equal voices a cappellaThe sound sample uses the version for low altos and is sung by the composer.The pdf file provides version in various keys to suit baritones, tenors, altos and sopranosThe poem is in French, apart from a quotation from Hölderlin in the original GermanHere is a rough English translation of the poemIt stands by the sleepy riverBut the bending willow would touch the water with its very topThe church - an old church - tells the hours from the island where the night descendsI can still see it, its grey roof in the grey of the waterI have a presentiment in the tower of wood, of my dwelling place, of madness, of silenceClosed in, closed in but keeping watchOh never change what remains and should remainWas bleibt aber stiften die Dichter.....[What remains, however, is the stuff of poetry].
