Sweet is the Memory is a setting of a quotation from Cicero, the great Roman orator and writer. 'Sweet is the memory of troubles past, of trials o'er, of sorrow gone'. The words would make this suitable for any reflective occasion, or as a concert piece. Ken Burton is the Director of the London Adventist Choir. The setting is for unaccompanied mixed voices and has solo lines for a treble (or a few trebles) and tenor voice.
