This elegiac setting by Thomas Keesecker is quickly becoming a favorite of choral groups. Accompanied by a solo cello, the chant-like rhythm lends this piece a more somber feel. The acclamation "Sancta Maria" provides a high point, followed by a movement downward to the remembrance of the hour of our death. The cello leads to hushed "Amen."
Topic:  Marian devotion, Marian feasts, Petition, Comfort
Sunday of the Year:  Advent 4 Year B, Advent 4 Year C; Annunciation, Immaculate Conception, Our Lady of Sorrows, Funeral
“… everyone who hears the piece is enthralled with it. We sang it at Mass at St. Peter’s the week the new pope was elected and the musicians at the Vatican had to have a copy.”
- David Rhyne, conductor of the South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts
