This Agnus Dei setting interleaves the poem 'Do not stand at my grave and weep' into the traditional Mass movement in order to create a conversation between ritualised notion of the Latin text and the more personal text by Mary Elizabeth Frye. The piece employs multiple soli and small groups to create various textures within a chamber choir. Not suitable for a large choir.
Instrumentation: SATB choir with solo voices.
Duration: 6 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — Advanced level chamber choir
Dedication note: Dedicated to the memory of Timothy Marks (1971-2016)
