6.75x10.5x0.029 inches. Christina Rossetti/Chris Massa.

This classic text by Christina Rossetti is set in an artful and expressive choral tableau. Text painting abounds as the poem unfolds and the wide dynamic range coupled with the writer's expressive palette of choral colors makes for an exquisite musical experience. This piece offers choirs a challenging yet truly rewarding anthem for general programming or especially for Ash Wednesday and Lenten worship needs.

    This piece, while accessible for a church choir (not many part splits, and repetitive enough to learn with little rehearsal), is a stunning rendition of Rossetti's poem. Reminiscent of Lauridsen's work, the sound is warm and lush, simple and profound. A really nice piece for professional or amateur...

    choir alike. I sang for 5 seasons with The Dale Warland Singers at the beginning of my performing career and this is a piece I could hear being done breathtakingly by a choir of that tonal focus, while its simplicity allowed our volunteer church choir to do a moving job of it as well. I look forward to finding more by this composer!
