Scored for 2-3 and/or 3-5 octaves of bells, optional organ and/or brass and percussion, this contemplative, plaintive, mysterious work conjures up images of monks in brown robes singing in stone hallways on their way to vespers. It is written in g minor with a definite Gregorian chant quality about it, only a bit more metered rhythmically. Martellatos play an important part in the work, first in appearing only occasionally to emphasize then in a full-fledged passage of mart and mart-lifts. At 132 measures it is a big work, but is accessible to level III choirs. Although the 3-5 octave part will stand alone, the 2-3 octave part will not. Brass ensemble consists of 2 trumpets, Horn in F, 2 Trombones, Tuba, Finger Cymbals and Tambourine.
