EACH JUBILANT CHORD
Musical settings of Thomas Traherne
Rob Peters (b.1969)
The third piece, Canon is scored for 4 sopranos in unison and sets the short, untitled poem to be found in chapter XXII, Of Temperance in Matters of Art in Traherne’s Christian Ethicks.
All Musick, Sawces, Feasts, Delights and Pleasures,
Games, Dancing, Arts consist in govern’d Measures;
Much more do Words, and Passions of the Mind
In Temperance their sacred Beauty find.
