SATB, SSA or TTB a cappella | 3 min. | Graphite | Text by Samuel Daniel
Love is a Sickness takes nonsense words already in Samuel Daniel's text and adds scat syllables, creating a jazzy, swinging accompaniment to the soprano melody: "More we enjoy it, more it dies; If not enjoyed, it sighing cries, Heigh ho!"
SATB a cappella | 3 min. | Boosey & Hawkes | Text by Annie Finch
Annie Finch's poem is a love song describing the most beautiful and intimate images of love - “warm hands,” “gentlest sounds, touches and hours.” The text is set apart and isolated in sound until halfway through the piece when the voices finally merge together, finally united.
