This work is based on the Gregorian chant used during the first and second weeks of Advent in the liturgical calendar. The text, from Isaiah 45:8, expresses the longing of the earth for the righteous and, in particular, for the coming of the Saviour. Time signatures vary from 4/4 to 3/4 depending on the inner rhythms of the text, as in chant. The translation of the Latin text is as follows:Drop down dew, Ye heavens from above, and let the clouds rain down the Just One. Be not angry, oh Lord, and remember no longer our iniquity. Behold, the Holy City has become a desert; Sion has become a desert. Jerusalem is desolate; the house of thy sanctification and of thy glory, where our fathers praised thee.
