The Lamb

Instrumentation: SATB Chorus
Year Composed: 2004, revised 2015

A setting of William Blake’s famous poem from Songs of Innocence and Experience. This piece is based on alternating between two hexachords; one for the 1st line and one for the 2nd line of each rhyming couplet in the text. This brings about some very unexpected, richly beautiful harmonies.
