John Rutter: Shall I Compare Thee To A Summer's Day?

Books | SATB, Choral

Composer: John Rutter
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

John Rutter's Shall I Compare Thee To A Summer's Day? for SATB unaccompanied. 

This secular work is set to the text of Shakespeare's famous Sonnet No. 18. Throughout the work, Rutter skilfully weaves the figurative language of the sonnet within the lyrical melodic lines of the music. Shakespeare's expressive text is passed between the voices, with the warm, verdant harmonies enveloping the sonnet's use of imagery and the work's central metaphor of comparing love to a summer's day.
