This madrigal on a text by Walt Whitman (“Come, lovely and soothing death”) is an extract from the composer’s large-scale Requiem.

“Come lovely and soothing death,
Undulate round the world, serenely arriving, arriving,
In the day, in the night, to all, to each.”

(from “When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d”)
