    This piece is truly inspirational. It has some very clear shapes and lines, most of which are unbeleivably beautiful. They are not complicated or wierd; just simple and relaxing. There is a treble solo in the middle which just about captures what a treble solo is typically;the voice of...

    an angel, quite high pitched with some beautiful long high notes. Then follows a baritone solo, which just about captrures what a baritone solo should be like; quick and excited and leading us into a more emotional phase. In this part Ireland applies some truly captivating suspentions and cadences. This piece literally left me shaking. (I am a treble in a College choir in Cambridge. I have been there for nearly five years now, and I think it would be fair to say I have only come across a peice as inspiring as this once or twice in all that time. Another peice that I would reccomend is O Where Shall Wisdom Be Found by Dr. William Boyce.)
