1) Voicing: TTBB a cappella
Text: Wisdom 3: 1-3
Published by: Cypress Choral Music
Notes: This work was composed in 1999 and first performed by Chor Leoni, Vancouver. It is the second of three settings that I have done of this particular text. The recording to the right was submitted by the choir as an entry for the 2002 CBC Choral Competition. It is conducted by the legendary Diane Loomer. The text is a famous passage from the Apocryphal Book of Wisdom.
Performed by: Chor Leoni, Diane Loomer, C.M. conductor.
The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God,
There shall no torment touch them.
In the sight of the unwise, they seemed to die:
But they are in peace.
Wisdom 3: 1, 2a, 3b
