Description

for SATB unaccompanied Meaning 'Souls of the Righteous', this reflective anthem is especially suitable for the Feast of All Saints but may be sung at any time of year. Jackson masterfully balances the still, mesmerizing music of the opening and close with a more agitated and emotionally powerful central section. This piece is suitable for church and secular mixed-voice choirs, and a non-singing translation of the text is included.show more
