HMM 24C6048 Price:   $1.00 per copy license fee
Timing:   2:45

Number of Pages:   7

Difficulty:   MD

Occasion/theme:   Trinity Sunday; general
Text Source:           European 12th Century symbol (Scutum Fidel)

Notes:   A dialogue for two choirs, beginning and ending quietly and in unison. Three sections in between explore the text, each building on the preceding material. There is a louder climax on "sanctus, sanctus, sanctus," but the piece remains calm throughout. Note the recording differs slightly from the printed score in text underlay for some tenor and bass parts in measures 24-27.
