Text by Henry Vaughan (1621-1695), alt.

From Peter Hilliard comes this dynamic musical offering on a text by 17th-century metaphysical, Welsh poet Henry Vaughan. A simple melody is embellished throughout to underscore images from the text, and a horn obbligato sounds the clarion call (“Awake!”). Invest time rehearsing this breathtaking number with your choir—it is well worth the effort.
