Michael Oberhauser (b. 10 January 1985) “Heaven-Haven: A Nun Takes the Veil” (2007)
Performed by mezzo-soprano Erica Haman and pianist Kayme Henkel.
poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins (28 July 1844 – 8 June 1889)
“I have desired to go
Where springs not fail,
To fields where flies no sharp and sided hail
And a few lilies blow.
And I have asked to be
Where no storms come,
Where the green swell is in the havens dumb,
And out of the swing of the sea.”
