This reflective setting of an evocative text by Charles Bennett uses pastoral and romantic imagery to depict the beauty of a life free from the desire for worldly possessions. The music draws on the words' dream-like character, with lilting scat rhythms and interweaving vocal lines building to a stirring climax before the piece gradually fades as the idyllic vision is enveloped in sleep. With sacred and secular resonances, Marriage to My Lady Poverty is ideal for performance in both services and concerts
