Ruth Elaine Schram's setting of Agnus Dei is a lush setting with parts intertwining in the most unexpected ways, forming uniquely beautiful harmonies. The cyclical nature of the piece reiterates the meaning of the text, a fervent prayer, “Lamb of God, grant us peace.” Festival or contest piece for schools, and a moving Lenten anthem for the sanctuary.
