Lat. Choral Octavo.
What a stunningly beautiful melody! Opening with an optional solo, then duet, Pie Jesu develops with lush harmonies and counter-lines, then moves into a contrasting "Agnus Dei" middle section. A pronunciation guide for the traditional Latin text is included in the publication. Easy piano accompaniment and singable vocal lines with basic voice leading. Available in editions for choirs of all ages; the 2-part/SSA edition is a gem.
