OF THE FATHERS LOVE BEGOTTEN
||Of The Fathers Love Begotten
||This SSAATTBB choral arrangement of a 13th-century plainsong (chant) is
striking in its simplicity. It features unison melody singing—first the men and
then the women—over one continuously sung chord on a neutral syllable. If
the low “E” (E2) second bass part is too low for one of your male singers, it
can be eliminated without any harm to the overall spiritual quietness and
intensity of the work. The resolution of the somewhat dissonant F-sharp in the
next-to-last chord of the alto part, measure 33, to an E in the final chord
should be followed by a long decrescendo into quietness.
