Mysteriosa Rosa Est (Rose of Mystery)
C. Griffith Bratt
The mystery in this text by Edith Hayes is expressed by a sensitive combination of modality and varied meters. Dynamic extremes also help bring the work to a climax as the choir exclaims ‘Mirabile’! before fading to ppp in a restatement of the opening text. A recording of this work is available on “Gloriae Dei Cantores” 020, “This World’s Joie”. An order may be placed simultaneously with an octavo purchase.
