Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron) was somewhat of a rake and a scoundrel.  Upon attending a cousin's wedding, he was overwhelmed by her grace and beauty, writing this idealized poem in tribute to her.  It is known throughout the world as a pristine description of objective love.  This choral setting of Lord Byron's poem is tender, delicate, and lush.  Its warm sound is achieved by gently-emerging, divisi vocal lines resulting in rich polychordal harmonies.  This "vision of loveliness" is evocative in its expressiveness and awe-inspiring through its sonority.
