  • September 10, 2010 Phenomenal

    I sang this with the National training choir of northern Ireland recently, and was absolutely blown away by the power of this piece it was absolutely wonderful, the piece has great timbre and can show off any part. i would recommend this to any choir with a strong soprano section...

  • March 24, 2008 Excellent !!

    Wonderful music ! Melodic lines are well built and easy too sing, but it needs good individual voices to reach the very low (C# bass) and very high (B sopran) notes, and to render the pure sound it requires. A long natural reverb will help to sound its magic.

  • February 07, 2008 Amazing writing

    This score helps to realize the complex writing and singing parts that seem to melt together. Best of luck to any choir that attempts this piece.

    it was this last year that i was in the northern nevada allstate choir, as a bass 2 singer, it was directed by Dr. Ronald Staheli and we sang this song, and ever since , every time i hear it i sing it and it never stops but to give me...

    goose bumps all over again. It reminds me of the beauty of god.
