This very interesting setting of the familiar text has an aleatoric quality resulting from its chant-like solo melody underlaid by sustained mildly dissonant chords. These passages are alternated with sections in simple common time with rich but unexpected harmonies. The piece lends itself to interesting placement of singers, soloist versus choir.
