Three Motets Op. 252 – No. 2 As Ruth Refused Naomi’s Pleas
Peter Pindar Stearns
This text of comfort and hope is by Jeannette Lindholm. Mr. Stearns has provided a homophonic setting that is not only gracious to the ear but provides a serene foundation for the text. This short motet is appropriate as an introit during a penitential season as well as a general anthem.
