Composed by Christian James Jesse. 21st Century, Contemporary Classical. Score. 9 pages. Published by Christian J. Jesse (S0.313723).

Item Number: S0.313723

A lovely high school/collegiate SATB choral setting of the poem "Hope" by English poet, Joseph Addison (1672-1719). I wanted to keep the beauty of the text and give a sense of growth throughout the piece just like we see in our lives, but similar to our lives it isn't always clear and simple.

Approximate duration: 4'30"

Listen to the full mp3:


Our lives, discoloured with our present woes,
May still grow white and shine with happier hours.
So the pure limped stream, when foul with stains
Of rushing torrents and descending rains,
Works itself clear, and as it runs refines,
till by degrees the floating mirror shines;
Reflects each flower that on the border grows,
And a new heaven in it's fair bosom shows.

-Joseph Addison
