This short choral song was originally written as an exercise for students of choral conducting. However, it stands well on its own as a concert piece. The style is openly neo-romantic and should be performed with plenty of rubato. The instrumental solo is perhaps best suited to the oboe, but it may be played on either the flute or the violin as well.
Although the minor sixths may cause some difficulty at first, the pitches of the choral parts are designed to be easy to find.
Played on an oboe, the instrumental part will likely require a professional. It is quite within the abilities of a high school flute or violin player. The same may be said of the piano part.
Music, when soft voices die, Vibrates in the memory; Odours, when sweet violets sicken, Live within the sense they quicken;
Rose leaves, when the rose is dead, Are heap'd for the beloved's bed: And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone, Love itself shall slumber on.
