Instrumental Only?

For solo or unison voices and harp or piano (or other keyboard instrument.) Could also be done by unison voices. Just a wonderful setting of the well-known Song of Solomon text. Perfect for a wedding or any church service where the text is appropriate.

The recording features the composer playing from memory and so differs slightly. You'll figure it out.


Arise, my love, and come away,
for winter is past, winter is past.
The light of heaven shines in our hearts,
the rain is over and gone.

The flowers adorn the bright new earth,
new blossoms appear, new blossoms appear.
The songs of doves are heard in our land,
Their joyful music abounds.

The blossoms reach out, reach out to the sun,
Heaven and earth lift up their voice,
Arise! Arise!

Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
and come away, come away.
The light of heaven shines in our hearts,
The rain is over and gone.
Alleluia, Alleluia.
