This is a powerfully evocative choral work for SATB double choir. The text by Paul Eluard (trans. Gilbert Bowen) invokes a simple and enduring picture of humanity through a series of vivid images: a loving couple with their child between them, a woman feeding her child, the sun binding the earth at midday. Combining a highly expressive melody with rich, sumptuous harmonies, Chilcott's setting captures the timeless quality of the words. This is beautiful, contemplative music which will be enjoyed by listeners and performers alike.
