for SSAATTBB chorus, unaccompanied
text by Christina Rossetti
Luther College Music Series
MorningStar Music, 50-5215
A stirring, lush setting of the poem A Song for the Least of All Saints that uses a variety of compositional techniques to illustrate the devotional imagery of Rossetti's text. Most appropriate for collegiate choruses, or advanced church, school, or community choirs.
"Perfect choral writing of a kind...comforting and tender, the aleatoric measure proving that this music is no anachronism. When the harmony finally settles, the sound is magical." ~ The American Prize
Winner of the 2011 Raabe Prize for Excellence in Sacred Composition from the Association of Lutheran Church Musicians.
Recorded by the Luther College Nordic Choir, Allen Hightower, conductor, on the CD Holy Radiant Light.
