Remarks: Each verse of this dialogue between Madonna and Child is given a distinctly varied scoring to dramatize the unfolding story that takes the listener from the manger to Calvary. "An elegant setting of this 15th century text, the warm harmonies and suspensions are extremely effective. Rocking rhythms and sonorous harmonies fill the composition." [from a review by Marie Stultz] A recording by the choir of St. Dominc's Church under the direction of David Schofield is available at: http://www.stdominics.org/music/recordings.asp.
