This recent publication is a wonderful setting of a Walt Whitman text. It is typical of a Clausen piece with frequent changing meter and exciting rhythms. A repeated “ad lib.” section adds rhythmic freedom and excitement. This piece is not as demanding as other Clausen selections, but requires a solid ensemble for effective performance.
