Ma la notte risurge (But soon it will be night [and we must rise to the stars])
Oramai e da partir (Now is the time to depart this place)
Che tutto veduto (For we have seen and experienced it all)
Ritornar! (Keep moving - return to paradise)
Vexilla Regis prodeunt inferni! (The wings of hell's monarch are heard nearby)
(We must leave quickly)

Ma la notte risurge (But soon it will be night)
Salimmo su, tanto ch'i' vidi (I climbed toward paradise with no thought of looking back)
De le cose belle che porta '1 (I passed through a small opening)
Ciel, per un pertugio tondo. (And finally saw heaven and the supreme light)
Quindi uscimmo a riveder le stelle (And beheld once again the stars)

    One of the most beautiful and intense pieces for both the singer and the listener. ABACA form, diverse themes and each theme just as complex as the next. It is a challenge in tuning, range, and duration. Prepare to spend ample time to do this piece justice, but the product...

    is a piece that will surely be a memorable favorite. Composed for double choir, this piece works well with choirs that excel in intonation, blend, vocal technique and balance split between two choirs. Certain parts ask a lot of high tenors and sopranos. I would highly recommend for an advanced choir with several talented singers in each section. Their versatility will make this piece shine.
