Part's take on the Te Deum text, also known as the "Ambrosian Hymn", employs his signature tintinnabuli style of composition. The melodic lines, as well as their harmonies, strictly follow the rhythms of the text, resulting in heightened importance given to the text itself and an unconventional setting. For advanced players and vocalists.
