    I used this piece for a Maundy Thursday service. You will need to have a choir which is on top of their skills as there are some lovely Oremesque harmonies which needs a good ear or at least a lot of time in preparation if your choir has pitch issues...

    . However, it is well worth the time to learn this, if you have it. A good choir can read this without undo rehearsal. Great text, gorgeous harmonic language... a keeper!
