Happy birthday, Emily

In honor of the birthday of English novelist and poet Emily Brontë (1818-1848), here is a choral setting of one of her poems.

Shall earth no more inspire thee,
Thou lonely dreamer now?
Since passion may not fire thee
Shall Nature cease to bow?

Thy mind is ever moving
In regions dark to thee;
Recall its useless roving—
Come back and dwell with me.
