This thrilling setting of the Easter vigil reading utilizes two vocal soloists and violin. The violinist weaves in and out of the texture dramatically highlighting the soloists' proclamation of the scripture. Exodus segues seamlessly into the Canticle of Moses and Miriam.
Topic:  Easter season; Freedom; Glory of God; Salvation
Scripture:  Exodus 14:5-15:1
”This dramatic setting of the third reading in the Easter Vigil's liturgy of the Word would be an interesting addition to your Triduum. The cantors move freely from chant to metered notation. Haunting and beautiful, the violin beautifully supports them and engages them melodically. While there are not man liturgical occasions for the performance of this work, I would certainly look for any opportunity to do it as a prelude or as a call to worship.” --- Joe Pellegrino, Pastoral Music, December-January 2006
