Written for the Washington and Lee University Singers in 2016, this is a haunting setting of parts of several poems by Joseph Mary Plunkett, the man who came up with the ill-fated plan for the Easter Uprising. Much of it he wrote for the great love of his live, Grace Gifford, who he married seven hours before his execution for his part in planning the failed revolution. The tenor and soprano soloists take the part of the lovers. The music expresses their love, but also the foreboding of what is to come. A masterful, mysterious, and moving piece for a capable college or community choir. Duration: 5:00

Part of the National Collegiate Choral Organization Choral Series/NCCO Series.
