Set to a 13th-century anonymous text, the composer says, "Despite its ancient origin, this text is surprisingly "current," a hopeful and accepting call to community, as reflected in the words, "Come even if you have broken your vow a thousand times, come yet again, come." A rhythmic piece with a 3+3+2 eighth note pattern providing the opening. Some clever shifting of tonalities adds interest to the piece.
