Agnus Dei – Opus 11

Agnus Dei (Lamb of God) is a choral composition in one movement by Samuel Barber, his own arrangement of his Adagio for Strings (1936).

In 1967, he set the Latin words of the liturgical Agnus Dei, a part of the Mass, for mixed chorus with optional organ or piano accompaniment. The music, in B-flat minor, has a duration of about eight minutes.

Here is the oustanding rendering of this piece by the Vlaams Radio Koor.

Rorate Cæli Desuper - Score Cover

Rorate Cæli Desuper

Rorate Cæli Desuper was composed in 2017 and this Christmas carol is more an “Advent carol” as the lyrics, from the book of Isaiah (45:8), are frequently sung as a plainsong at Mass and in the Divine Office during Advent where it gives expression to the longings of Patriarchs and Prophets, and symbolically of the Church, for the coming of the Messiah. Throughout Advent it occurs daily as the versicle and response after the hymn at Vespers.
