Call, The

Poet/Lyricist: 

George Herbert (1593-1633)

This stirring new setting of the mystical poem famously set by Vaughn Williams was commissioned by the outstanding Opus7 (mixed) and Seattle Girls Choir. An exceptional piece for double choir, this a cappella work requires an advanced treble ensemble.

Text

Come, my Way, my Truth, my Life:

Such a way as gives us breath;

Such a truth as ends all strife,

Such a life as killeth death.

Come, my Light, my Feast, my Strength:

Such a light as shows a feast,

Such a feast as mends in length,

Such a strength as makes his guest.
Come, my Joy, my Love, my Heart:


Such a joy as none can move,

Such a love as none can part,

Such a heart as joys in love
