Hauntingly beautiful, and deceptively simple. The sopranos, altos, and tenors sing in canon; while the basses sing the same seven pitches repeated (albeit with changing rhythms). Looking for a piece to work on your minor solfege? This is the one – entirely diatonic in d minor. Looking for a song to teach a minimalist aesthetic? Yes, that too. I love this work not only for the quiet dissonances and the vibrant message, but also because it invites prolonged mental focus from the choir and delivers meditation for the audience.
