Description: Moderately difficult. A piano reduction is provided for rehearsal purposes. At measure 9, if range is an issue, the tenors and altos may switch notes, but I suspect most tenors will find it easiest to hear their leap as written.
Original text and translations
Song of Solomon 2:10-13
10 My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
11 For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;
12 The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;
13 The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
