The superb craftsmanship of her works once again is seen in this new piece. Scored for mixed chorus and piano on a text of Harriet Prescott Spofford, try the piece in a group reflecting the power of music. Great for high school, college/university, or community choirs.


When stars pursue their solemn flight, Oft in the middle of the night, A strain of music visits me, Hushed in a moment silverly,— Such rich and rapturous strains as make The very soul of silence ache With longing for the melody; Or how or whence those tones be heard, Hearing, the slumbering soul is stirred, As when a swiftly passing light Startles the shadows into flight; While one remembrance suddenly Thrills through the melting melody,— A strain of music in the night. - Harriet Prescott Spofford
