The ebb and flow of tension and release defines the overall structure of the piece. The text and music meld together perfectly to invoke a powerful message. Althought the text “I believe” is sung repeatedly, Horvit sets each section differently, which leads to the climax of the piece at mm. 33-35. A most haunting and memorable piece.
