Version for Double Chorus published by Schott Choral Music.


This setting of the traditional Agnus Dei text is full of yearning as the sinner pleads for mercy. As the harrowing semitone voice-leading rises through a series of tense and resolving chords, it finally opens up to the 'Dona Nobis Pacem' with full-body pleas for forgiveness, peace, and rest.
