This searing acapella round
with words from Song of Songs
a mesmerising film by Jack Cornell
honours the Mathematical Poet
Elizabeth Tollet (1694 – 1754)

“Set me as a seal upon thine heart,
as a seal upon thine arm:
for love is strong as death;
Many waters cannot quench love,
neither can the floods drown it:”
