is at the mercy of Baron Scarpia and why God has seemingly abandoned her.


Fear No More the Heat o' the Sun

Music by Lillian Redl

Text by William Shakespeare

Soprano-Jennifer Wu, Soprano-Jillian Nulton,

Alto-Carrie Magness Radna,

Tenor-Drew Elliott, Bass-Alan Ravage

This piece is a 5-part a cappella choral setting of the famous song from

Act IV, Scene ii of William Shakespeare's play Cymbeline. Although in the play two brothers sing it as a sort

of requiem to a boy whom they believe to be dead (but who is actually, in true Shakespearean style,

a young woman who has unwittingly taken a sleeping potion) the text makes such a powerful

statement on its own that it works well even for a larger group of singers. There are hints of Renaissanc

harmonies and counterpoint in the piece as an homage to the music of the time in which the play was written,

but there are also harmonies from a much later, and more modern, palette.
