Appointed as the Gradual for the early Mass of Christmas morning ("Mass at Dawn"), but the text calls for other uses as well, namely during the season of Easter, and Christ the King.

This piece, which I wrote in 2004, is rather unique.  It has a short, simple unison antiphon for the congregation, followed by an SATB motet-like versicle, then back to the antiphon.  Rather brief, at only 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 minutes long.

Even more unique is that the text here is in English!

SATB, Congregation, and Organ
