… because I find it lovely. And I do love lovely.

Atlanta Master Chorale; Dr. Eric Nelson, Conductor; Accompanist: Jonathan Easter

Music, When Soft Voices Die

Music, when soft voices die,
Vibrates in the memory;
Odours, when sweet violets sicken,
Live within the sense they quicken.

Rose leaves, when the rose is dead,
Are heap’d for the belovèd’s bed;
And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone,
Love itself shall slumber on.

—Percy Bysshe Shelley
