Agnus Dei (Do not stand at my grave and weep) : for SATB choir / Paul Stanhope.

Library shelf no. 782.55525/STA 7 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

This Agnus Dei setting interleaves the poem 'Do not stand at my grave and weep' into the traditional Mass movement in order to create a conversation between ritualised notion of the Latin text and the more personal text by Mary Elizabeth Frye. The piece employs multiple soli and small groups to create various textures within a chamber choir. Not suitable for a large choir.
