Michael Trotta's new (T)TB arrangement contains lyric, legato vocal lines which unfold to reveal a subtle interplay between voices, interwoven with piano and an optional obligato line. The text, an account of two lovers faced with parting, concludes with the yearning refrain, Stay or else my joys will die, which gives voice to the dichotomy of the feelings of joy and pain associated with closeness and separation from a loved one. Also available for SATB (CM9296) and SSA voices (CM9280).
