Notes

The text for this piece combines gthe medieval “A Rose Hath Borne a Lily White” (James Ryman, 15th Century) with Alma Redemptoris Mater, credited to Hermann the Lame (1013-1054).

Musically, it draws on the Gregorian and Anglican choral chant traditions with the aleatoric soprano lines towards the end of the piece suggesting an angelic choir.
