ADA for SATB chorus Score, permission to print 30 copies
The text is t by Gertrude Stein, 1910:
She came to be happier than anybody else who was living then. It is easy to believe this thing. She was telling some one, who was loving every story that was charming. Some one who was
living was almost always listening . Some one who was loving was almost always listening.
That one who was loving was almost always listening. That one who was loving was telling
about being one then listening. That one being loving was then telling stories having
beginning and an ending . That one was then one always completely listening, Ada was then
one and all her living then one completely telling stories that were charming, completely listening to stories having a beginning and a middle and an ending. Trembling was all living, living was all loving, some one was then the other one. Certainly this one was loving this Ada then. And certainly Ada all her living then was happier in living than any one else who ever could, who was, who is, who ever will be living.
