Mixed choir (SATB) a cappella

See digital edition

This short piece is a musical setting of some extracts from a famous poem by Keats. The musical translation is tender and beaming in a tonal-modal language, focused on D major. Structured in a ternary form, the work opens with a first rather contrapuntal section, still dominated by the soprano line. Then a central section gets a more homophonic, sombre and violent characteristic, according to the contrasting principle of the poem. The first theme comes back in the basses and is worked out in a new contrapuntal way. After a brief shady evocation of the “Sombre Saturn”, the coda puts a quiet joyful end to the piece.
