Study of the Object
For voices (SATB)

From the opening of Study of the Object.

I discovered the poem Study of the Object by the Polish poet Zbigniew Herbert as a teenager and have over the years set its words several times. It continues to lay a curious spell on my imagination and recently I've become to understand its oblique and ironic world more fully and completely.   
Hence a further version. This choral setting forms the basis of a larger and further work (of the same title) for a variable ensemble of voices and instruments composed as a companion piece to Metanoia for variable ensemble composed in 1988.
