For tenor soloists and SATTBB unaccompanied Robert Herrick's meditation on the true meaning of Lent is given a vigorous intensity in this setting by Richard Baker. The piece is full of driving rhythms, crunchy dissonances, and dramatic interplay between the voices. The impact of the climactic final section, in which the Lenten purpose is stated without compromise, is potently visceral. A rewarding anthem for committed choirs.
