EACH JUBILANT CHORD
Musical settings of Thomas Traherne
...and then the sky was crowned with stars
A piece for concert band (woodwind, brass & percussion) which is inspired by lines for Thomas Traherne’s Centuries of Meditations I, 29.
You never Enjoy the World aright, till the Sea it self floweth in your veins, till you are Clothed with the Heavens, and Crowned with the Stars: and Perceiv your self to be the Sole Heir of the whole World.....
