For SAATB unaccompanied. This edition reconstructs two breathtaking motets. The text by St Francis of Assisi, incorporating the phrase 'we do not know the day or the hour when the Lord will come', is appropriate for the end of the Church Year and during Advent. These elegant, straightforward settings are within the abilities of most church choirs.
