Musical settings of Thomas Traherne

Jan C. Snow

To walk is by a thought to go

A work for SATB (unaccompanied) that sets verse 4 of Thomas Traherne’s poem Walking.

To walk is by a Thought to go;
To mov in Spirit to and fro;
To mind the Good we see;
To taste the Sweet;
Observing all the things we meet
How choice and rich they be.

Recorded: A performance of the piece is available on Youtube, given by the Unitarian Society of Germantown, directed by Mark Daugherty.
