A terrific SATB setting of Samuel Barber’s popular Agnus Dei (or Lamb of God). Taken from his 1936 composition Adagio for Strings Op.11, it is among the most familiar pieces of American concert music and has graced Film and Television with it’s poignant sincerity.
It is a dignified, simple work with the repetition of a rhapsodic section that rises to a climax, the intensity gradually building and then falling away following the ‘arch’ form tradition. This is a wonderful Latin Text version of Agnus Dei and has been transcribed effectively for Full Mixed Chorus and optional Piano accompaniment.
a good arrangement which will offer a challengs for a small choir which is always looking for something new for their expanding repertoire. musicroom.com can be trusted to supply a huge catalogue of choral music for all standards and abilities. Anonymous

Although originally Barbers Serenade for Strings it lends itself very well to the words of the Agnus Dei Anonymous
