This is a minimalistic piece I wrote for the Feast of Corpus Christi. The melody I think is easy to sing for any amateur choir. I did not want to write a poliphonic and 'large', massive piece. I tried to express the beauty of the text by it's simplicity.

You sing the verses between the repeat bars ( not needed to sing all of them), then you sing the 'Amen. Alleluia.' part. In theese short minimalistic pieces, I always let the conductor decide the dynamics and the accelerations-deceleration. Only the most important of them are written.


As the harmonies I used, I'm open to any suggestion, that helps me to make the piece more likely fit in the mood it has. There might be more proper solutions I did not take into consideration.

Thanks!

The idea that you want to emphasize the text pleases me. For me lyrics is as important as the music itself.

I like the atmosphere and the music supports the text and vice versa. Well done!

Thank you for replys! I'm happy to hear it sounds nice to others.

Luis Hernández! My native language is not English, maybe I used 'minimalistic' as a non-proper for for a music without complex structure neither counter-point. In my vocabulary, 'minimalistic' meant to be simple :). But you are totally right it is choral style, maybe I had to use that phrase.
