Treble choirs will delight in this beautiful setting of the favorite Emily Dickinson text. An elegant, dramatic piano accompaniment adds great color and support to the expertly crafted melodic lines of the singers. Also available for SATB
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.
Iíve heard it in the chillest land
And on the strangest sea,
Yet never in extremity
It asked a crumb of me.
