Set as a dialogue between a young woman and her elusive lover, the work is scored for soprano and tenor soli, SATB chorus and a small instrumental ensemble. It may also be performed in a reduced scoring for piano or keyboard and percussion. The music is accessible and appealing and the chorus parts, although challenging enough to engage the interest of experienced singers, are well within the reach of any enthusiastic choir. There are 20 short movements and the work lasts approximately 40 minutes in performance.
