She Walks in Beauty

| /
Ruth Watson Henderson
SATB divisi a cappella
The woman depicted in She Walks in Beauty elicits expressions of tender and gentle endearment from the poet. To accompany words like “sweet,” “pure,” “soft,” “eloquent,” the music flows gently, uninterrupted by rhythmic outbursts or jarring dissonances. Poetry by Lord Byron.
