This familiar text from the 13th century is rendered by Jonathan Willcocks in a tender, evocative setting that is updated to include chamber orchestra with mixed voices is now available in a revoicing. The haunting melody flows smoothly throughout, buoyed by warm four-part writing and a gentle, serene accompaniment. The final seven-fold "Amen" displays exquisite choral writing.

This familiar text written by St. Richard of Chichester in the 13th Century is presented with an exquisite melody and carefully written harmonies. Constant movement and contrast between the parts provides a perpetual motion until the 7 fold Amen peacefully draws everything back together beautifully. Youth and adults alike will fall in love with the text and the choral sound. Use this as a worship anthem or in concert, and you will never regret buying it.

The Bottom Line

Pros
Excellent part-writing, especially in the 7-fold amen at the end>
