The heavens' flock

First line:
Stars, you are the heavens’ flock
composer
SATB divisi; commissioned by Ethan Sperry and the Portland State Chamber Choir
author of text
Be here when I can see you, when I cannot

 
The heavens’ flock is a celestial meditation, an American commission for Ethan Sperry and the Portland State Chamber Choir. The words are by Paulann Petersen, the Poet Laureate of the state of Oregon. This is a simpler vision than that of Northern Lights, but its single paragraph is glowing in its diatonic certainty; the poem’s blaze may be small, but it is bright and it is beautiful.
