SSATB unaccompanied
Duration: 2.5′

This expressive Wedding anthem sets an extract from William Blake’s Auguries of Innocence. With chromatic inflections and gently arching vocal lines, the music perfectly reflects the text’s emphasis on the relationship between pleasure and sorrow. Joy and Woe are woven fine will make a striking addition to the repertory of more experienced choirs looking to try something new.
