This work, like most of Allan’s, is very lush and evocative. This one uses the biblical text in a hymn-like setting that goes far beyond a hymn. It is challenging for the singers and very satisfying for the audience.
The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God
and there no torment shall touch them
In the sight of the unwise, they seemed to die
but they are in peace
