With gentle wings your heart will rise and fall with each careful dynamic change in this absolutely stellar creation. If you like the Morten Lauridsen Dirait-ons, you are going to love this piece. It tears at your soul and brings tears to your eyes just form the beauty of the writing. Such pain, wonder and beauty!
French composer Anthony Sylvestre recently joined the Composers of Choral Music Community. I am looking forward to more works by this extremely sensitive artist!
