Repertoire Note  
Choral level of difficulty: Level 1 (5 greatest)

A short and simple setting of a beautiful Latin text (Mouth of the dumb...). The first section has the duet singing the same rhythm together with triplet figures from the harp separating and accompanying their phrases. These harp phrases then form the Alleluias which the voices pick up. Simple and effective.

'Mouth of the Dumb', a version with English text by the composer, is also available.
