Jacob Narverud: Bio and other works
RELEASED: July 2022
voicing: SATB | catalog number: SBMP 1692 | duration: 3'30" | price: $2.20
accompaniment: a cappella

The simple beauty of Francis Ledwidge's late summer poem shines in this elegant work for a cappella mixed chorus. Homophonic, with little divisi throughout, this poignant piece is ideal for developing ensemble unity and musicality. A heartfelt tune for the sensitive, expressive choir.

performance by: Tallgrass Chamber Choir (Lawrence, Kansas) Jacob Narverud, Conductor [© all rights reserved]

She’ll come at dusky first of day,
White over yellow harvest's song.
Upon her dewy rainbow way
She shall be beautiful and strong.
The lidless eye of noon shall spray
Tan on her ankles in the hay,
Shall kiss her brown the whole day long.

I'll know her in the windrows, tall
Above the crickets of the hay.
I'll know her when her odd eyes fall,
One May-blue, one November-grey.
I'll watch her from the red barn wall
Take down her rusty scythe, and call.
And I will follow her away.

Francis Ledwidge
