In honor of the birthday of English novelist and poet Emily Brontë (1818-1848), here is a choral setting by Ola Gjeilo of one of her poems.
Few hearts to mortals given
On earth so wildly pine;
Yet none would ask a heaven
More like this earth than thine.
Then let my winds caress thee;
Thy comrade let me be—
Since nought beside can bless thee,
Return and dwell with me.
Yeah. I really love this guy, Ola’s work. … and this choir do it good, too

They are an excellent choir. My husband and I have been to many of their concerts and enjoyed them very much.
