About

This work for unaccompanied mixed-voice choir alternates bold tonal chords with simple plainsong-like passages. The chordal writing often pits half the choir against the other half, in a type of canon effect. The plainsong-like passages are underpinned by simple repetitive drones. The text, set here in Latin, is part of the Tract for the Mass for Palm Sunday, and includes the well-known entreaty 'My God, why hast Thou forsaken me?'.
