This sheet music is extracted from The Song of Songs. This is a collection of poems written about love between a man and a woman, who also write about nature and other people. This is one of the most poetic books of the Bible. The author is unknown. Based on the great number of female characters, it could have been written by a woman. Some poems are based on Egyptian ones. The Song of Songs was first rejected because of its secular and erotic aspects. Vytautas Miškinis has a rather classical way of writing; the four homorhythmic male voices are split into four parts whereas alto and soprano voices are rather independent.
