A beautiful sung blessing featuring an ostinato refrain. The chanted opening and concluding prayers should be sung by a cantor in a prayerful manner that clearly communicates the text. Especially appropriate when used as a blessing on those embarking on significant work on behalf of Christ’s mission.choir supports the assembly’s ostinato refrain. The molto rit. at measure 38 is very important in order to signal to the assembly the end of the ostinato.
