Quick Overview

Trotta conceived this well-known Latin text as a dialogue between supplicants and the Creator, a combination of old and new. He masterfully juxtaposes a personal longing for something still to come with the steadfast assurance of something ever-present, yet not always seen. While the original theme is associated with the Christmas season, the wider theme of longing for something greater is universal to the human condition making this piece  appropriate for any concert, contest or festival. Also available for SATB Voices (CM9418), SSAA Voices (CM9436) and Three-Part Mixed Optional Baritone Voices (CM9546).
