A triptych of pieces for harp (or piano) and SATB divsi chorus using texts by poet Christine Schenk. Her version of the "O Antiphons" provides a means of contemporary reflection on those ancient texts. The three short movements are untitled but the texts begin 1. "O Wisdom," 2. "I wait with quickened hope for crooked paths to straighten" (a cappella), and 3. "You who make wastelands bloom." The music is masterful, at times introspective and gentle, at times sweeping and dramatic. Duration: 9:00
