Here we have two more movements from Dave and Jean Perry's Missa brevis. The "Agnus Dei" has a slow, lyrical setting enhanced with soprano and alto solos moments. It flows straight into the "Dona Nobis" where the tempo picks up slightly and the texture of the arrangement is a nice contrast to what came before. The beautiful qualities of this arrangement can be enhanced by an optional arrangement for 2 harps and strings (vln 1, vln 2 , vla, cello, bass). If you do not have 2 harps, a piano part (different from the piano part in the octavo) is included to cover the harp parts.
