It is scored for two semi-choruses (SSA and SATB) with a large mixed-voice choir. The accompaniment is for piano duet and percussion. The texts are a mix of extracts from the Latin Te Deum and a 15th century text from India by Kabir. The piece was conducted by the composer at the beginning of the final concert of the 1996 Melbourne International Choral Festival.
