This fine piece begins with a ten bar transition from the reading into the canticle itself, sung by two soloists with wordless choral underlay. Next is the core of the piece, an eight-bar section that is repeated six times under the canticle verses sung by the soloists. The refrain for the assembly enters in the middle of these eight bars every time, reinforced by the glorious choral harmonies and the cantor. An imaginative violin part dances above it all. So glorious, and still just over two minutes -- just the right proportion for its place in the Great Vigil!
