Caught, between the woods and frozen lake--
I would share this online video, but as it is a copyright violation, I am hesitant to share it here. At any rate, I think the composer's tribute is a worthy restoration of a poem made trite through too much exposure. It brings back all the original uncanniness and mental flickering of "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening." Although Frost hated the result the first time his work was set to music, I can't help but think this piece would give him pleasure: the original version of Sleep by Eric Whitacre with the Concordia Choir.
