This piece is simple, short, and mysterious. She is betrothed, but loves another. The women basically carry the song, but men provide haunting and steady reinforcement. This would be a very simple addition to any set on the theme of secular love. It could easily be learned in a few rehearsals, and would be a nice vignette to teach homogenous vowels and breath support within your choir. The piece is approximately 2:30 minutes.
