dc.description.abstract This seven-movement cantata is a setting of texts from the Psalms which portray a spiritual pilgrimage. The work begins with viola playing harmonics off-stage, and all performers processing into position. Each singer has an extended solo movement or section, and sings as a member of the quartette. The recessional is accomplished during the last two movements. Texts are set in the original Hebrew, Latin, German, and English. The musical materials are drawn from the opening five pitches, B$\flat$, C, D, F$\sharp$, G, and the plainchant LU 1250, for the dedication of a church, Terribilis est locus iste, as used by Dufay in the motet Nuper rosarun flores. Although there are audible links between movements, several can stand alone.
