|In 2008 the Pittsburgh Camerata commissioned an a cappella choral version, which the group premiered in early 2009 in four subscription concerts.|
|text:||Music, when soft voices die by Percy Bysshe Shelley
Music, when soft voices die,
Vibrates in the memory;
Odours, when sweet violets sicken,
Live within the sense they quicken.
Rose leaves, when the rose is dead,
Are heap'd for the belovèd's bed;
And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone,
Love itself shall slumber on.
