Agnus Dei

by Christopher Ducasse

SATB a cappella – CP 2064 – duration 2:45

This classic text from the mass has been set by many composers for centuries. Christopher brings a grandeur to the text with long melodic lines in sweet spot vocal registers – very approachable.  The music has an impressive build to a golden-mean climax. The piano accompaniment flows and supports the singers. Singers and listeners will love this contribution to the music world.
