Based on a text by Christian mystic Hildegard Von Bingen, I am the secret fire in all things celebrates the transforming power of spirituality and the evolution of the human spirit. Scored for SSAA divisi and two soprano soloists, the powerful  melodic statements coupled with ethereal divisi make for an ecstatic and mysterious declaration of spirituality.
