About

This joyful and lively work is a song of thanks and praise for the many features of the world around us. The text is by Reeve Lindbergh, and is based on the well-known Canticle of the Sun attributed to St. Francis of Assisi. Musically the work features much use of syncopation and cross-rhythm, within a strongly tonal setting.


Commissioned note

Written for the Oulainen Youth Choir, Finland and conductor Tapani Tiril on the occasion of their 30th anniversary in 2002
