Who is She that Ascendeth by the Dean of Canadian Composers, Healey Willan, is a festive motet for SATB Choir (a capella) with divisi.

Healey Willan is considered Canada's most important composer. Among his amazing repertoire of opera, chamber music, symphonic literature and more, his sacred music for worship is of the highest quality.

This extraordinary setting of a text for the Assumption of the Virgin Mary was dedicated to John Finley Williamson and the famed Westminster Choir of Princeton, New Jersey. It has strikingly original harmonies which create a mood of mysticism rather than modernism. It rapidly and aptly shifts to adapt itself to the fast-changing changing imagery of the text. An outstanding brief choral work that is very singable, but will provide your singers a worthy challenge!

Biretta Books in Chicago works in cooperation with the Estate of Healey Willan and the Healey Willan Society to promote the legacy of the Dean of Canadian Composers-Healey Willan. Learn more at
