Music Text

Adapted by composer from The Song of Solomon, ch. 4, v 6-7 Revised Standard Version, Catholic Edition (E)

Abbreviations (PDF)


Boosey & Hawkes


Repertoire Note

Choral level of difficulty: 1 (5 greatest)

A short, beautiful setting of words from the Song of Solomon written for the marriage of his son, Aidan, in 2018 and sung as the Bride processes to the altar with her father. The piece is dedicated to Aidan’s new wife, Kleida. The words from that source are always appropriate for a beautiful new bride ending ‘You are all fair, my love, there is no flaw in you’. Set as a soprano solo with a simple organ accompaniment there is a short section for optional full choir if one is available.
