At that hour when all things have repose

author of text

James Joyce wrote a letter to his brother expressing the hope that his collection of thirty-six poems, Chamber Music, would one day be set to music: ‘The book is in fact a suite of songs and if I were a musician I suppose I should have set them to music myself.’ The first of three texts from Chamber Music featured on this disc, At that hour when all things have repose is set for choir and harp by American composer Timothy Stephens. It is a work filled with musical images: ‘Play on, invisible harps, unto love’.
