And every stone shall cry

Forces or Category: SATB (with divisions) unaccompanied

for SATB (with divisions) unaccompanied This poignant and reflective carol is set to a poetic text by Richard Wilbur inspired by verses from St Luke's Gospel. The poem foretells not only of Christ's birth, but also his death; the contrasting, bittersweet emotions it portrays are captured perfectly by the wistful melody which prevails throughout.
