Ecce Beatem Lucem (Behold the blessed light) uses the same text as Alessandro Striggio's forty-part motet of the same name. Here, Dove creates an awesome soundworld with shimmering choral writing and a lively organ part to accompany the broad sweeping vocal lines.
This piece is an ideal anthem or concert work.
