Richard Allain's A Perfect Friend for unaccompanied SATB choir.
This piece is a setting of text by Robert Louis Stevenson. Duration: 3 minutes.
"Robert Louis Stevenson's poem A Perfect Friend provides the text for Richard Allain's third piece in this review, a slow-paced setting of the hymn to the perfect female friend, which, in its big crescendos and diminuendos seems to be trying somewhat too hard to inject emotion - but in the hands of a sympathetic and skilful choir it could no doubt work its end upon our senses."
