Review quote

Carol Barnett uses the original tune for Angelus ad virginem in an inventive setting, where the tune is passed from voice to voice accompanied by ostinatos or parallel fourths and fifths, creating the effect of a wild medieval dance. * Church Music Quarterly, September 13 * A familiar Irish melody (with both Latin and English texts) is given a charming, jubilant setting.

Medium difficulty. * Philip Brunelle, American Guild of Organists Journal, Sept 13 *show more
