KUBLA KHAN by Samuel Taylor Coleridge SATB 6:40
Date: April 10, 2014
This famous poem is among the most exotic in all of English literature. Coleridge (1772-1834) became
addicted to opium, and the fantastic visions he experienced are depicted in Kubla Khan. I have tried to
reflect these many moods in their abrupt changes and clashing emotions. Animato, difficult - 6:40.
All my compositions are written in Sibelius, so fully profesional scores and mp3 demo files are available.

Thank you, James Johnson
