For Every Love a PlaceGreg Bartholomew - Burke & Bagley
A setting for men's chorus (TTBB) of the poem "To a Friend" by James Fenimore Cooper, Jr., (1892-1918). Captain Cooper was the great-grandson of the novelist. A graduate of Yale, Cooper died of pneumonia at Cap Dix, New Jersey, the first member of his class to die in service during World War I. To a Friend was published posthumously in 1918 in a collection titled Afterglow, some of which had previously appeared in the Yale Literary Magazine. Captain Cooper is described therein as having a character which never departed from the determination to do what was right and to be kind and just to all. Duration: 5 minutes.
