There is No Rose

 

Product Description

A truly unique and deeply spiritual composition incorporating a much-loved traditional English text. The effect of dissonance resolving into consonant chords creates a mysterious and calming effect. This piece is appropriate for both concert and worship use. Published in the Baylor University Choral Series

Text

There is no rose of such virtue

As is the rose that bare Jesu;
    Alleluia.

For in this rose contained was

Heaven and earth in little space;
    *Res miranda.

 

Leave we all this worldly mirth,

And follow we this joyful birth  

    Alleluia

*Wonderful Thing
