Sometimes, for EternityDonald M. Skirvin - Donald Skirvin
This work is an ode to those whose lives were well-lived in music. Scored for solo violin and SATB chorus, the setting is direct and accessible, it employs rich harmonies and is constructed with careful voice leading. The poem and piece ends with the lyric "Each dawn: A song sparrow; On my headstone Trilling lux aeterna. Not for me; But not minding If I'd listen Sometimes For eternity."
