New for 2021: “BE NEAR ME” for unaccompanied mixed choir (SATB) by Greg Bartholomew, a setting of Canto 50 from the poem In Memoriam A.H.H. by the British Poet Laureate Alfred Tennyson (1809 -1892).
Published in 1850, the poem is an extended requiem for the poet’s beloved friend Arthur Henry Hallam, who died of a cerebral hemorrhage in 1833, age 22, and is considered one of the greatest poems of the 19th Century. It was reported to be a great favorite of Queen Victoria.
