CoverMay Wind (Set Me Free) [level: Medium]
Jacob Narverud: Bio and other works
RELEASED: July 2023
voicing: SATB | catalog number: SBMP 1745 | duration: c. 3:17 | price: $2.70
accompaniment: piano
Other Voicing: SSA(A)


Narverud’s setting of this evocative Sara Teasdale poem tells a story about how experiencing nature and music can inspire deep love and happiness. Soaring vocal lines combined with rich, dissonant harmonies and a rocking piano accompaniment make this a powerful piece that will resonate with choirs of all ages. The duple-against-triple patterns represent the conflict between Love and Stubbornness, which ultimately ends with the triplet pattern (Stubbornness) surrendering to Love (duple pattern) for a beautiful, empowering ending — “Love: Set Me Free!”

May Wind (Set Me Free)

I said, “I have shut my heart
As one shuts an open door,
That Love may starve therein
And trouble me no more.”
But over the roofs there came
The wet new wind of May,
And a tune blew up from the curb
Where the street-pianos play.
My room was white with the sun
And Love cried out in me,
“I am strong, I will break your heart
Unless you set me free.”

Sara Teasdale
