This is a joyful piece in celebration of the long life of a friend of mine. The first part of each line should be sung quite freely, in plainchant style, and just a little faster than the tutti sections; the note durations given for these plainchant sections are just a guide. Throughout the piece, please allow a little space between phrases.
A recording by Rudsambee company of singers is available on their album bottled at source (RUBEECD003).
