This serene and prayerful entreaty contains powerful imagery of what a church is for all who enter. It opens with simple two-part singing that effortlessly develops into commanding four-part choral writing. At its end the piece appropriately quotes the plainsong chant Ubi caritas et amor… (Where there is charity and love, God is there). Perfect for the dedication of a new church.
