This motet, from William Beckstrands Requiem, is well suited for All Saints Sunday as an ending to a concert or worship service. The compositions haunting final passage is intended to be repeated continuously in a recessional, the music fading as if to the heavens. The Latin chant from the Requiem Mass (Rest eternal grant to them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them) is accompanied by a verse in English from the Epistle for All Souls Day: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord. Revelation 14:13. Part of the National Lutheran Choir Series. Voicing spilt: SSATBB.
