( s a t b ) a cappella.
This new setting of the Prayer of St. Francis is beautifully set for four-part (divisi), a cappella choir. With an elegant melody, exquisite harmonies and a few effective meter changes, the lyrics are enhanced by some stunning word painting using simple but unconventional compositional techniques. The piece concludes by invoking ethereal impressions of eternity. This arrangement is accessible for late intermediate to advanced choral groups.
