Stella (Victor Hugo)

Sincere thanks to Matthew Curtis ( for this recording. For song description and sheet music, see below.

Description: “Stella” is dedicated to my friend Kristina, who introduced me to this remarkable French poem by Victor Hugo written in 1853 while in exile on the Isle of Jersey. It is a complex layered poem exploring a multitude of interactions with the morning star — in naturalistic, religious, spiritual and seemingly political terms.

Sheet music (SATB):

NB: TTBB and SSAA arrangements will be available in the future.
