1. Awake, Awake to Love and Work 2. The Virgin’s Slumber Song 3. Praise the Lord! Ye Heavens Adore Him 4. O Lord of Stars and Sunlight 5. Praise We Our God. Two of the five songs in this collection are from Mozart’s opera, “Bastien and Bastienne,” written when he was twelve years old. The other songs are taken from Mozart’s solo songs, with sacred texts added. “Awake, Awake to Love and Work” has an optional flute part added by the editor. Have your choir explore the challenging melodic lines with a neutral syllable first, and then add the text.
