my piece “VOX CLARA” for female choir (SSAA) and soprano solo is now available at Edition ICOT.
You can also have a taste here of how it will sound with Matthew Curtis’ and his assistant Rachel Schoenecker’s voices.
And this is the English translation of the Latin Text.
1 Hark, a joyful voice is thrilling,
And each dim and winding way
Of the ancient temple filling ;
Dreams depart, for it is day.
2 Christ is coming — from thy bed,
Earth-bound soul, awake and spring —
With the sun new-risen to shed
Health on human suffering.
3 Lo, to grant a pardon free,
Comes a willing Lamb from heaven ;
Sad and tearful, hasten we,
One and all, to be forgiven.
4 Once again he comes in light
Girding earth with fear and woe ;
Lord, be thou our loving might,
From our guilt and ghostly foe.
5 To the Father and the Son
And the Spirit, who in heaven
Ever witness, Three and One,
Praise on earth be ever given
