The Hjo Church Youth Choir, Sweden;
Mats Bertilsson, conductor This bright and joyous work by a well known Swedish composer can be performed with or without the optional liturgical chant in the beginning. It is a great choice for a jubilant Christmas concert opener.
Men's Chorus from Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth, TX; Michael Cox, conductor For the mature male choir, this stunning, chant-like setting consists of three different prayers revealing the full depth of the Kierkegaard text. Although not vocally difficult, the quality of the interpretation lies in the natural flow and meaning of this powerful text.
VocalEssence Ensemble Singers;
Philip Brunelle, conductor A Baroque gem and early master work (1621), in modern notation for today's choirs. Fit the performance to your re-sources: Sing in English, German or Latin; instruments may replace voices; strings may be added. However performed, this great music brings a most rewarding expe-rience.

Erik Westberg Vocal Ensemble; Erik Westberg, conductor Free meter, contained ranges, and sensible repetition make this a joy to learn and perform. A simple, gentle setting of the tra-ditional Latin lyric relies on contemporary harmonies which hearken back to early re-ligious music. Works well for both worship and concert.
ASU Schola Cantorum;
Kira Rugen, conductor This luscious setting of the Latin text, was an immediate favor-ite with numerous choirs! Based on a chorale motif from the last movement of his Sunrise Mass, the composer has developed the beautiful melody into a free-standing anthem.
