Ralph Waldo Emerson's text 'Write it on Your Heart' explores the philosophy of carpe diem, meaning seize the day. Emerson's words describe how we as humans should do our best to let go of our frets and anxieties and live in the moment, as if every day were the best day in the year. Halloran's setting, for SATB chorus a cappella, uses lush harmonies and smooth melodic lines to bring Emerson's words to life.
