Program Notes

When Morning Comes was written for The Princeton Singers on the tenth anniversary of 9-11.


THOUGH all the primrose paths of morning call
Your feet to follow them, and all the winds
Of all the hills of earth, with plucking hands
Wooed you to slopes that shone like emerald,
You shall not go. The thin green grass that binds
Your feet had Earth and Death to forge its bands.
[The thin green grass that binds
Your feet shall rise anew when morning comes.]

–from “To a Dead Soldier”
Kendall Harrison
