The words of St. Francis of Assisi have come into even greater prominence under the papacy of Pope Francis. Tony Alonso’s setting of Canticle of the Creatures highlights Francis’ call for the care and respect of all creation. A short refrain punctuates the litanic nature of the verses, allowing the assembly to add their voice to this chorus of praise.
