”The phrase ’Heart, we will forget him!’ runs like a mantra through the note systems, this is grief being processed. Emily Dickinson’s poem deals with one of the finest, yet most difficult, of all human endeavors, our relationships.
In this setting, I would like to shift the perspective, showing her words from an angle that is not often found in the repertoire of men’s choirs – that all relationships have a right to exist, to be acknowledged, to thrive and maybe even to break down.” – Linnea Landström
