CoverHope Is the Thing with Feathers [level: Easy]
Kenney Potter: Bio and other works
voicing: SATB | catalog number: SBMP 1017 | duration: 2:30 | price: $2.15
accompaniment: a cappella


A clever, upbeat rhythmic pattern mirrors the sentiment of the text as it “never stops at all” except for a few moments of mid-song reflection with the poem’s final thought: “It never asked a crumb of me.” Fun and inspiring, this piece would provide a special highlight for a concert.

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all,
And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.
I’ve heard it in the chillest land
And on the strangest sea,
Yet never in extremity
It asked a crumb of me.

by Emily Dickinson

"Simply love this song. Great dynamics and flow. Also loved "Galilee" and will try both with my church choir. Had a brief look& listen. Found quite a few of your 'easy' marked materials wrongly classified and should be at least 'medium' in challenge. Will return to site for a more in-depth search"
