LIFE HAS.... (SATB, a cappella)

Dear ChoralNet friends,
enjoy this beautiful performance of my new piece "Life has..."
The Singapore Youth Choir is conducted by Jennifer Tham.
It's a choral setting on the poem "Barter" by one of my favorite poets, Sara Teasdale.
Life has loveliness to sell, 
      All beautiful and splendid things, 
Blue waves whitened on a cliff, 
      Soaring fire that sways and sings, 
And children's faces looking up 
Holding wonder like a cup. 
Life has loveliness to sell, 
      Music like a curve of gold, 
Scent of pine trees in the rain, 
      Eyes that love you, arms that hold, 
And for your spirit's still delight, 
Holy thoughts that star the night. 
Spend all you have for loveliness, 
      Buy it and never count the cost; 
For one white singing hour of peace 
      Count many a year of strife well lost, 
And for a breath of ecstasy 
Give all you have been, or could be.
