This is an atmospheric setting of an anguished love text, describing three rivers that flow into the sea, what they carry vanishing like love. The alto and tenor parts portray the continually flowing movement of the river. The soprano line carries the main melody and story. The piece demands careful, beautiful, flexible and controlled singing.
