Forgotten

Instrumentation/Voicing: 
SSA choir, oboe, & piano

Sara Teasdale's famous poem comes alive in this setting by Jocelyn Hagen. The choir spends much of its time in unison, rarely splitting into three parts, making it perfect for a younger women's choir. Power and delicacy exist side by side in this composition, and the women's voices have many chances to soar.

Text: 

Let it be forgotten, as a flower is forgotten,
Forgotten as a fire that once was singing gold.
Let it be forgotten forever and ever -
Time is a kind friend, he will make us old.

If anyone asks, say it was forgotten
Long and long ago -
As a flower, as a fire, as a hushed footfall
In a long forgotten snow.
