Setting a translation of an original Latin text by the founder of the Franciscan Order, the work was composed for the BBC Pilgrim Consort in a live broadcast from Montserrat Abbey in Spain on Radio 3 in 2006. The music ranges from the meditative to the ecstatic, led by a demanding tenor solo, with vibrant harmonies accompanying and with a lively contrapuntal middle section.
