The Marriage of True Minds Sheet music
for SATB and piano or stringsThe Marriage of True Minds is an emotive setting of Shakespeare's Sonnet 116, a favourite text for weddings.
Chilcott presents two distinct musical characters: the music for the first quatrain is warm, passionate, and optimistic, featuring changing metres and rich harmonies, while the music for the second and third quatrains is contemplative yet resolute, featuring running triplets in the accompaniment.
The closing couplet is a fusion of both characters, leading to a heartfelt,touching finale. An accompaniment for strings is available on hire/rental.
