I finished my piece, Rachel Weeps for SATB, saxophone, and piano.  
It mixes the Agnus Dei text with a passage from Jeremiah:  
     In Ramah a voice is heard
     Lamenting and weeping and mourning greatly
     Rachel weeps for her children....
It was requested by Fr. Halbert Weidner, one of the chaplains at Wesleyan U;
I knew Hal in high school. It will be premiered at his church the Sunday after
Christmas; the day is associated with the slaughter of the innocents.
