David Lang: again (after ecclesiastes)

SSAATB chorus (non-printable digital download* only for use on tablets, iPads, and other devices)


For SSAATB chorus. 'again (after ecclesiates)' is a setting of a few lines from the beginning of the Book of Ecclesiastes, freely adapted by me. Ecclesiastes is a Hebrew prophet (in Hebrew his name is Kohelet) and his book is traditionally read during the harvest holiday of Sukkot. Kohelet moves powerfully from the cycling of the seasons to other endless natural and human cycles, creating a strange equilibrium of hope and futility. In my setting I wanted to make a piece that might convey the weariness of all of these endless cycles, concentrating on the weight of things repeating again. And again. — David Lang
