This sensitive work for a cappella choir is based on the well-known Herrick poem, “Go pretty child, and bear this flow’r.” The inventive and lush harmony is remarkable in that it is accomplished with no divisi writing. Good basses with an ability to sing sensitively in their low register are required for proper balance.
