A Thousand Years

Voicing: SATB a cappella

Duration: 3' 00"


A setting (in English) of an 8th century Japanese poem by Lady Heguri. Pentatonic harmonies and a haunting melody make this an arresting concert piece. 


A thousand years you said,

as our hearts melted.

I look at the hand that you held

And the ache is hard to bear.

A Thousand Years
