“Set Me as a Seal upon Thine Heart” (commissioned for the wedding of Daniel Bara and Deanna
Joseph, both conductors) is a setting text drawn from Song of Songs 8:6–7. The quartet, which sings the
English text, may be performed with one on a part or as a small ensemble, as balance warrants. The
SATB divisi choir part sings the same passage of scripture, but in a transliteration of the Hebrew.
