CoverI Never Saw [level: Medium]
Davide Riva: Bio and other works | Jo-Michael Scheibe Choral Series
RELEASED: July 2022
voicing: SATB | catalog number: SBMP 1679 | duration: c. 2'24" | price: $2.20
accompaniment: a cappella

Davide Riva’s beautiful acapella setting for four-part mixed voices is set to the beloved poem by Emily Dickinson. The composition is divided into two repeated sections. In the first section, the choral texture is homo-rhythmic and in the second section, the voices are set into a simple counterpoint. “ I Never Saw”  closes on the dominant chord creating a feeling of suspension that enhances the concept of faith expressed by Dickinson.

I never saw a moor,
I never saw the sea;
Yet know I how the heather looks,
And what a Billow be.

I never spoke with God,
Nor visited in heaven;
Yet certain am I of the spot
As if the Checks were given.

Emily Dickinson
