    The melismas in this music magnify the words of the Bible: the words of Mary, a young girl who was going to bear God's son, Jesus. The words and notes soar with the emotion and joy in carrying this child and willing, dutifully bear the richness, the shame and...

    the glory. It is a very classical piece using the melismatic notes found in the early church cathedrals: Reminiscent of plain chant.
