New song: what was said to the rose ...

I learned a new song at SHH yesterday!  A beautiful three-voice canon on the words of Rumi. 
What was said to the rose
that made it open
was said to me here in my chest.
Yummy sentiment.  Yummy melody.  Rumi, you are amazing.  And dear composer that is yet unknown to me, thank you.  And Jules, thanks for bringing it to SHH!

  1. The composer is no longer unknown! Laszlo Slomovits, my chest is filled with what was said to the rose and sends it back to you! And thank you to Coleman Barks for translating Rumi into yummy English. The whole poem is here: http://www.greatmotherconference.com/poems/rumi_rose_coleman_barks.html
