Brett's noteworthy setting, based on the familiar hymn tune DIVINUM MYSTERIUM and incorporating texts from the Sacramentary, makes an effective and memorable Advent gathering rite, seamless from procession through the opening prayer. The presider's part is readily perceived as it outlines the elegant, stepwise motion in the melodic classic. The writing for chorus is proficiently set for SAB. Within the body of the octavo you will find Introits and Opening Prayers for all Sundays in Advent as well as the solemnity of the Immaculate Conception.
