Love Among the Ruins - Amor Entre Las Ruinas (Music by Carlos Colón)

This is my setting of the last stanza of Robert Browning's poem Love Among the Ruins.
The singer is soprano Karen Hogue. The Baylor Chamber Players are conducted by Carlos Colón.

In one year they sent a million fighters forth
South and North,
And they built their gods a brazen pillar high
As the sky,
Yet reserved a thousand chariots in full force--
Gold, of course.
Oh heart! oh blood that freezes, blood that burns!
Earth's returns
For whole centuries of folly, noise and sin!
Shut them in,
With their triumphs and their glories and the rest!
Love is best.
