premiere performance by the Jubilate Vocal Ensemble
Sara Teasdale’s evocative poem is presented with great tenderness by Dr. Chatman. His quality writing is suitable for choirs from High School to University Ensembles.
Let it be forgotten, as a flower is forgotten,
Forgotten as a fire that once was singing gold,
Let it be forgotten for ever and ever,
Time is a kind friend, he will make us old.
If anyone asks, say it was forgotten
Long and long ago,
As a flower, as a fire, as a hushed footfall
In a long forgotten snow.
poem by Sara Teasdale
