Renaissance composer Orlando di Lasso used this Latin text for one of his works and Lee quotes this musical motive in this new and contemporary composition. The text speaks to the power of music to calm angry souls and uplift sad spirits, to even move the very trees and the wild beasts. This work and the di Lasso would make excellent companion pieces on a concert. Duration: ca. 5 minutes 40 seconds.
