Look how far off those lower skies extend themselves!

A setting of the 9th stanza from Traherne’s poem Shadows in the Water for SSAATTBB, a cappella.

Look how far off those lower Skies
Extend themselvs! scarce with mine Eys
I can them reach. O ye my Friends,
What Secret borders on those Ends?
Are lofty Hevens Hurl’d
’Bout your inferior World?
Are ye the Representatives
Of other Peopl’s distant Lives?
