This contemporary setting of the classic Latin eucharistic text finds a charming introduction and conclusion in brief quotes of Felix Mendelssohn’s familiar Songs without Words, op. 30, no. 3. Accessible phrasing and voice leading in the SAB choral parts seamlessly follow multiple modulations with adept support from the piano accompaniment, while the endearing recurrence of the opening melodic motive further unifies the piece.
