Stanford’s brilliant canvas for double choir powerfully communicates Milton’s contempt for Time, which may consume all before it, but man, touched by the divine, is more fortunate in his inheritance of eternal life. The overwhelming mood of Stanford’s choral song is one of haste and urgency in both the opening paragraph (‘Fly envious Time’) and the impatience of the rousing coda (‘Attir’d with Stars, we shall for ever sit’), but perhaps most striking of all is the expression of hope and aspiration of the central exultation (‘Then long Eternity shall greet our bliss’).
