The text “O vos omnes” is set for piano and SATB in a dynamic, expressive style. The opening section has a mournful Hebrew sound, while the rest of the work is aggressive and forward-moving, with a repetitive figure on the word “recordare.” This wonderful composition sounds more difficult than it really is!
