A star

First line:
Beauty was that
author of text

A star, a poem by Patrick Kavanagh (1904-1967), was set by Natasa Paulberg for the UCD Ad Astra Academy students in 2012. Paulberg, an Australian-Irish composer, illustrates the enormity and beauty of the night sky through her instrumental writing for piano, vibraphone, violin and cello. The glittering stars are represented by piano twinkles, while the melodic line and overall stability of A star is held by the choir, whose singers conjure a sense of reverence as night-time spectators.
