The Wonders of Nature by Dale Jergenson. SATB choir, Soprano & Alto Soli, a cappella. Choral. Creation/Nature, General. Difficult. Published by MorningStar Music Publishers (MN.CH-1305).
Number 5 of the cycle of The Heavens Are Full which consists of 5 a cappella pieces with texts from Ecclesiasticus 43: 1-37, found in the Jerusalem Bible. The Wonders of Nature is replete with word painting. From the cold, whistling wind of the snow, the jagged lightning, through the shivers of clouds and fragments of hail, the cacophony of thunder, the desert scorching like fire, the healing mist and the reviving dew, we come to the ultimate realizaiton that "Great is the Lord, having made all things".
