Death Shall Be No More

A wonderful a cappella piece for the choir looking to explore the judicious use of close harmonies within conservative vocal ranges. This moving setting uses John Donne’s text to reflect on the promise of the consolation of the afterlife.

“Say not in grief that life is no more, but in thankfulness that life was. Because the dawn has come. One short sleep past we wake eternally, and death shall be no more.”

Movement 5 from Light Shines in the Darkness.
