Of a Father’s Love Begotten

for mixed choir
by  Sanford Dole

This arrangement opens by lining out the plainsong chant over a drone. Then, in succeeding verses we hear it in organum before more complex harmonies and rhythms are added. Finally all voices sing the melody in canon before a concluding fantasia.
