Beautiful melodic lines convey the traditional Latin text in this artistic setting by Mark Patterson. The piece opens with a mood of awe and mystery created by handbells, piano, and layered vocals, and an artistic accompaniment supports the choral parts throughout. An ethereal descant complements the melody before the work draws to an ending of quiet splendor. A pronunciation and translation guide is included.
