SATB and Organ or Double Chorus a cappella. BSM0024a(b)_3.
Latin Text, Traditional
from Missa 'Musica Sacra'
Commissioned by Musica Sacra Warsaw-Praga Cathedral Choir.

This setting of the traditional Sanctus begins with a soft halo of sound which gradually grows throughout the movement until the exclamation, "Hosanna in excelsis". The opening halo returns as the Benedictus text begins and the movement ends with a warm finish.
