English.

Arranged for SATB choir, two keyboards, strings, and optional harp, with soprano, tenor (optional) and baritone soloists, this fresh and unorthodox interpretation reflects on the words of the Latin Mass by juxtaposing them with poems in English. For soprano solo and SATB choir, this movement begins with the choir on the English text by Phineas Fletcher (1633). A 32-measure soprano solo follows, which covers the majority of the English text. The soloist then begins the Recordare, a calm, descending melodic line with the choir singing the opening Drop, drop motif as accompaniment. The choir then concludes with the slow, descending lines Jesu pie, Jesu pie. Duration 4:04
