Once you begin hearing this piece you are drawn in...you want to sing it. The “eagle's wings” text is one of the most frequently set to music, and yet this one sounds like it has always been there, but not revealed until now. The essence of “wait” is captured in the opening section, which gives way to a new tempo, building with the “mounting on wings.” The true soaring takes place with a 12/8 meter, the voices building in triumph. A final return to the “waiting” theme provides an assurance that has permeated the entire composition. Excellent for church and school.
