The Litany of the Saints

A metrical setting of the Litany of the Saints. This setting is recommended for the Easter Vigil.

The main section invoking the saints follows a simple repeating melody throughout with the accompaniment becoming more elaborate and the addition of optional choir parts. In the final section, the momentum unwinds and gradually returns to the very simple chords of the beginning of the piece.
