The Shadowfor mixed choir (SSAATTBB) a cappella
Text: English (Seumas O'Sullivan)
Duration: 3'30''
Difficulty: 2/5

A part song by the eminent English choral composer Herbert Howells.

O herdsman, driving your small twilight flock
By darkening meadow, and hedge, and grassy rath,
The trees stand shuddering as you pass by,
And suddenly falling silence is your path.
Over my heart the shadows too are creeping,
But on my heart for ever they will lie.
O happy meadow and trees, and raths, and hedges,
The twilight and all its flock will pass you by.

Seumas O’Sullivan
