Nocte fletuum angelis.
Mundi frangitur.
Vocis voces in caelis
Clamant lucem extinguitur.

Night of weeping angels.
The world is shattered.
Voices resound in the heavens,
Crying out that the light is extinguished.

Your women’s choir or trio will find “Shenandoah” to be well worth the effort. This piece is an excellent concert choice and would also be very appropriate for contests, festivals, and literary events.
