Patterson's choral depiction of this brief and simple poem by Christina Rossetti (1830-1894) offers a poignant comparison between things made by people and the things found in the natural world. Sure to stretch the treble ensemble looking for growth in tone, text and musical line development, this lovely arrangement will appeal to singer and audience alike!
