Text: George Herbert.

This text by Welsh metaphysical poet George Herbert was a "shape poem", meaning that in its original printed form in The Temple (1633) it appeared in the actual shape of an altar. The text is a beautiful comparison of the altar to the human heart, set with great care by Hal Hopson to music that is sonorous and satisfying.
