This set of three poems was commissioned by Janet Herrick, a distant relative of the poet Robert Herrick. This a cappella set is accessible yet challenging for both high school and college aged choirs. The first movement is a fanciful look at "Father Time" and his tendency to escape us all. The second is a charming comparative sturdy of "littles" ("a little chapel fits a little choir, a little hearth best fits a little fire..." The third is a look at what may await us in the next life.
