This rhythmically interesting arrangement is based on a two bar divisi men’s ostinato with the women entering from time to time with musical shouts of affirmation. Variety is provided by passages of thick, rich and rhythmic exclamations. What at first appears to be an extremely complicated piece is, in fact, really quite simple. There is a wonderful climactic ending.
