“We bloomed in Spring, our bodies are the leaves of God.” This text of St. Theresa of Avila, here in a translation by Daniel Ladinsky, is a short statement on faith and understanding. Edie’s score is printed for 8-part choir, though conductors should not be too concerned about the difficulty as it is a lovely and tonal work. Exquisite voice writing and sensitive text painting make this one of my favorite short works in recent memory!
