ISBN 600313134159. English. Song of Songs 2:11-12.

The text for Arise is adapted from the Song of Songs 2:11-12, attributed to King Solomon. It is both a song of human love and spiritual devotion. Scored for three-part treble voices and piano, Arise joyfully welcomes new love, spring, or spiritual renewal. Duration: 2:02

The initial major motif appears successively in different parts of the chorus, then in canon in the piano part with the chorus, and finally as a three-part round. The middle section, "Arise, come away," is set in a minor mode and is legato in phrasing to express desire and longing. Here the chorus divides into two parts, as in two parts of a couple. In the final section, the major motif returns to celebrate the invitation to love being accepted. - Nancy Gifford.
