Repertoire Note

Choral level of difficulty: 2 (5 greatest)

This is a very effective and beautiful short motet in a chorale-like style with divided sopranos and tenors adding richness to the texture. The text is a simple one of praise and the setting responds with a lovely linear feel but without any of the contrapuntal complexity which MacMillan often uses.

The simple challenges here are of textural balance and voice blend to achieve the richness of vocal sound the music demands.
