  • Music for a While: Text setting and word-painting
    • The vocal line is mainly syllabic following speech rhythms.
    • There are paired slurrings (e.g. in bar 5 on the words ‘for’ and ‘a’).
    • There are melismatic moments (e.g. bar 10 on the word ‘wond’ring’).
    • There is an extended melisma in bar 20 on the word ‘eternal’.
    • Repetition of text is used, such as the word ‘Music’ at the start or in bar 23 the word ‘drop’ sung nine times.
