This motet, the second setting of this text by the composer, was written as a two-part choral work with organ accompaniment for a parish-type choir. It is also available in an SATB arrangement. Both settings are available from Publications by Wirripang. The two-part setting was written for the Parish Choir (one of several choirs in residence there) at the Church of St John the Evangelist in Gordon, Sydney. It was written for the occasion of "Back to St John's Day" celebrated on Pentecost 2009. The work is prayerful in nature and embodies something of the mystical nature of the Eucharist, making it particularly appropriate as a Communion motet. The text is very suitable in this context too, of course, and has inspired composers for generations.
Instrumentation: Equal voices and organ or SATB and organ.
Dedication note: Dedicated to the Parish Choir of St John's Church, Gordon and their then Organ Scholar, Nicola Chau
First performance: 31 May 09. St John's Church, Gordon, Sydney
