Back again in a long while with a choral piece that uses lyrics from Virgil's 'The Aeneid':
'Stat sua cuique dies
breve et irreparabile tempus [omnibus*] est vitae
Set famam extendere factis
hoc virtutis opus.'
* = left this word out of the song, since I struggled coming up with a rhythm for it, purely a compositional decision
'Each one has his appointed day;
short and irreparable is the brief life of all.
But to extend our fame by our deeds,
this is the work of manhood (or virtue).'
This mp3 rendition has GPO strings and Steinway piano. Just for this forum, since I usually have other libraries in use as well
