with the composer.
This work is atmospheric and intense, featuring contrasts of ethereal melody lines supported by stately, rich harmonies.
Unified by a repeated, modulated motif in the “Hosanna” section, this sensual yet spiritual Sanctus, from inimitably original Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo, promises to be a highlight of an advanced choir's concert or service.
While not easy, repetition of rhythmic and harmonic patterns coupled with the familiar Latin make this much more accessible than it appears. Completely rewarding!

Duration: ca. 4:30.
