Inspired by Shakespeare's Sonnet XXXIII, this bright piece is a lush, lyrical work featuring rich harmonies, memorable melodies, and solo opportunities for flute, oboe, bassoon, clarinet, and alto saxophone.

- Program Note from publisher

Full many a glorious morning have I seen
Flatter the mountain tops with sovereign eye,
Kissing with golden face the meadows green,
Gilding pale streams with heavenly alchemy;
Anon permit the basest clouds to ride
With ugly rack on his celestial face,
And from the forlorn world his visage hide,
Stealing unseen to west with this disgrace:
Even so my sun one early morn did shine,
With all triumphant splendour on my brow;
But out, alack, he was but one hour mine,
The region cloud hath mask'd him from me now.
