Here is a beautiful way for your singers to experience Renaissance polyphony in just fourteen bars of music. The music repeats twice, providing the three Agnus Dei petitions, the last substituting “dona nobis pace” (grant us peace) for the “miserere nobis” (have mercy upon us) of the first two petitions. This is a gem for your young choir or chamber group.
