From the composer -

"When I attended the ACDA Regional Convention in Reno in 1998, I was deeply moved when a choir sang this text which had been set by a San Francisco composer.  I took the W. B. Yeats poem home with me and tucked it away.  I wanted to set it myself, but didn't want my setting to be derivative of another composer's.  I waited until my memory of it faded.  Many months later, my setting emerged from Yeat's wonderful, bittersweet poem."
