Brontë Poems for Choir

for Three Equal Voices

I. She dried her tears

II. It will not shine again

III. But the hearts that once adored me

IV. I know not how it falls on me

V. 'Tis moonlight

Within each of these poems, Emily Brontë intimately negotiates the boundary between complete despair and a bittersweet sense of hope, paradoxically bringing the reader to the conclusion that the two are one in the same. In this setting of the texts, the focus is less on the words themselves, and more on the emotional complexities of the poems— each one with a unique sound world to accompany the varying degrees of darkness and dissonance within the text.
