Consider this exquisite choral tone poem to a paraphrase of the celebrated text from the "Wisdom of Solomon." Reveling in sumptuous harmonies, this artful anthem gives directors many intimate moments to explore. The text, well-known for its usage in weddings, is also a moving selection during Holy Week displaying Christ's sacrificial love and foreshadowing the imagery of Christ the Bridegroom dying for his beloved church. Rich writing and enriching poetry!
