Tonight I Dance Alone for double choir a cappella is about three short scenes from the life of an old man. We meet him before his wedding, before the wedding day, and as a grizzled widower, who tells his grandson,

Soon we will dance in the God-light,
My love and I 'll
soon enjoy the moon again,
And the endless shining stars
in the hall of heaven.
Soon, my love, very soon;
But tonight, one last time,
Tonight I dance alone.

The text and the tonal music are deeply moving. They form an ideal connection. Tonight I Dance Alone is Marten Jansson's first collaboration with the well-known lyricist Charles Anthony Silvestri. The piece is a great challenge for high performing choirs and ensembles.

The Saint Louis Chamber Chorus, conducted by Philip Barnes, premiered the work on October 1, 2017 in Saint Louis, Missouri, USA.
