Vidi aquam is a setting of a Sprinkling Rite for Eastertide composed for SATB chorus (divisi) unaccompanied. This work is written in a style that results in music that is ever-changing; flowing in one harmonic direction but never reaching the desired destination. In it, I make use of the original antiphon in small fragments and, near the end, the Doxology is sung by both men's and women's voices. Unique harmonic structure is core to my effort to bring these timeless chants to life in this composition. One should listen to and "channel" Gregorian Chant when preparing this piece with the intent of evoking a style of singing that echoes its qualities. -Connor Koppin

Duration: 4:40.
