Latin. Matthew 5:3-11.

Written for the Enchanted Voices CD, this is one of many settings of texts either from the Beatitudes (or springing from them) available from this composer. For soloist, SS chorus (divisi), organ, cello, and handbells, the music has a light, ethereal feeling. A unison chant-line begins the piece unaccompanied. The organ enters with a drone as the chant continues. At the text vocabuntur (called) the voices split into three parts in a beautiful moment of radiance. There is a cello solo (13 measures) which restates the chant melody. The voice enter wordlessly as the cello continues. Finally, the chant melody reappears in the voices, in canon, as the music ends. Duration 5:58

Instrumentalists play from the choral score. .
