CoverGrace Before Sleep [level: Medium]
Susan LaBarr: Bio and other works | Jo-Michael Scheibe Choral Series
voicing: SATB div. | catalog number: SBMP 1005 | duration: 3:10 | price: $2.05
accompaniment: a cappella

Sara Teasdales poem of thanks inspired a beautiful, melodic setting by composer LaBarr. A quiet opening builds into a gorgeous, resounding climax before coming to a more reflective, thankful close. The piece could provide a tender, thoughtful ending to a concert, or be part of a theme of thanksgiving.

How can our minds and bodies be
Grateful enough that we have spent
Here in this generous room, we three,
This evening of content?
Each one of us has walked through storm
And fled the wolves along the road;
But here the hearth is wide and warm,
And for this shelter and this light
Accept, O Lord, our thanks tonight.

by Sara Teasdale
