This short piece, which could possibly be used as an introit, creates a mystical yet celebratory mood. Attention to the dynamics is fundamental in achieving the contrast between light and shade, especially in the last phrase of the piece where the singers are asked to crescendo from p to ff over one bar. Some of the starting notes in certain phrases are unexpected and choirs would do well to practice singing the initial notes or chords of each phrase a number of times to increase confidence.
