A warm long lyrical melody begins in unison. Over the course of 3 verses the tune and accompanying figures are passed around. It finishes Maestoso. The soft refrain of Blessed o blessed indicates Mary relationship with her Lord. The rhythmic impulse varies throughout between 6/8 and 3/4. Whilst harmonically reasonably straight forward, the piece presents good tonal and blending challenges for a women's ensemble. The piano part can be played as written or embellished. Useful as an anthem or contemporary art song. Ideal for The Big Sing.
