since been taken up by other choirs and
performed several times.

    It requires confindent singers to bring off its dramatic effects. It is tonal with mild dissonances, and contains a very effective bell-like section, with each voice intoning a syllable of the word "Alleluia". If your sound is turned on, you should be hearing a performance now. To view the score (free of charge) click the "Go" button, or visit the Canadian Music Centre. I request only that if your group performs this piece, that you send me details so that I can keep this website up-to-date.
