Remember for SSATTB a cappella


'Remember', performed by Coro Volante under the direction of L. Brett Scott, is a highlight of the album. The powerful voices of the choristers give this piece a hypnotic quality that captivates the listener.

This composition for mixed 6-part a cappella chorus was read by the First Readings Project, led by composer/conductor J. David Moore, in Minneapolis, on 7 May 2019. It was later recorded by Coro Volante, Brett Scott, conductor, and is included on my 2023 release, remember (Neuma 183).

Please note that the cost of the music is per copy required for performance.

The text is by Christina Rossetti (1830-1894)

Remember me when I am gone away,
         Gone far away into the silent land;
         When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
         You tell me of our future that you plann’d:
         Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
         And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
         For if the darkness and corruption leave
         A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
         Than that you should remember and be sad.
