Seven Lyrics from Sappho
for SATB Chorus
10 min. •
These seven pieces can be performed in order as a set. Since the texts are so brief, it will enhance the performance to have each one read aloud by a single voice before the text is heard in its choral setting. Singing should follow reading without significant pause, and the whole performance should be paced so that the music is heard as a single work in seven sections.
It is also possible to perform some of the pieces individually, or to make other sets of three or more pieces as you see fit.
