She Walks in Beauty is a gorgeous piece of art and simltaneously a teaching piece of the highest caliber. Set in a tessitura for both voice parts that is neither monotonous nor taxing, this simple duet marries lovely poetry with long, beautiful lines. Given to a choir of developing-voice men, the piece deftly addresses a host of technical skills publishers tend to ignore. More settled voices would find great enjoyment in the piece as a small ensemble or in a festival setting. Ensembles of the highest competency can conquer the tune’s pitch and rhythm in a single rehearsal, jumping quickly into an exploration of its artistic potential.
