From the pages of concert music repertoire comes an adaptation that incorporates the power of the original masterwork with the impact of a new sacred text. Contemplative in nature, the cry for forgiveness and mercy rises like a prayer from the luxurious textures of the choral sonority. Linear voice leading gives this through-composed anthem an organic quality flowing with emotion and religious devotion. A noble orchestration crowns the whole with dignity and nobility. Available separately: SATB, Orchestration, StudioTrax CD.
