There Will Come Soft Rains

CME Conductor's Choice

Series: Conductor's Choice
Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes
Composer: Douglas Beam

The music for this setting of Teasdale's poem highlights the tension in the text between the beauty of nature and the violence human beings inflict on themselves. In the closing measures of the piece, the composer restates the opening line of the text to reinforce the cyclical patterns in nature: despite humanity's penchant toward violence, the rain will come and spring will begin again.
