Set to a Gaelic prayer translated into English, the flute plays the protagonist, dramatically opening the piece with a slow but flourishing melody, suggesting that this sleep may indeed be special. The choir is chant-like in their response to this opening as they implore “I am placing my soul and my body On thy sanctuary this night.” Sophisticated treble choirs won’t want to miss this most unusual piece.
