The first in a new series of original compositions commissioned or selected for performance by the choirs at Westminster Choir College. The 17th-century text is about seeking comfort in the welcome embrace of death and eternal life. Scored for SATB divisi, this is a serious choral work for the capable choir—church, high school, or college. A gorgeous, lush work. Destined to be a classic; written by a major new voice in choral composing.
