Description
A choral piece with piano using the words to Verse 73, Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám. This music is my response to the shootings in Tucson in January, 2011. It could be used for any sombre occasion when the universe seems unjust. SATB

NEARER TO THE HEART’S DESIRE
Verse 73, Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám (Persia, 1048 - 1131)
translated by Edward FitzGerald, 19th C.:)

Ah, love! could thou and I with fate conspire
To grasp this sorry scheme of things entire,
Would not we shatter it to bits -- and then
Re-mould it nearer to the heart’s desire!
