Patrick Hawes (Born 1958):  Many Waters

As a seal
on your heart;
set me there
upon your heart:
Passion cruel as the grave,
as fierce as any flame.

Love is strong,
strong as death.
Many waters
quench not
Love.

Performers: Elin Manahan Thomas (soprano), Janet Coxwell(soprano), Conventus, English Chamber Orchestra conducted by Patrick Hawes
