This is a collection of choral repertoire spanning years including Agnus Dei, the choral setting of Barber's Adagio for Strings, and the world premiere of a new choral arrangement of the Nimrod movement from Elgar's Enigma Variations. Beyond this recording's new age packaging and title is a splendid sampling of some of the world's finest choral music, sung by one of the world's outstanding choirs. This "anthology of sacred choral music" spans years and includes such masterpieces as Allegri's Miserere , Bach's "Jesu, joy of man's desiring," and Barber's exquisite Agnus Dei, which is the composer's choral setting of his famous Adagio for Strings.

Agnus Dei - Samuel Barber
In , he set the Latin words of the liturgical Agnus Dei , a part of the Mass , for mixed chorus with optional organ or piano accompaniment. The music, in B-flat minor , has a duration of about eight minutes. At the request of Arturo Toscanini , he arranged it for string orchestra , and in January sent that version to the conductor, who premiered it in New York with the NBC Symphony Orchestra. Graham Olson describes the composition for AllMusic. After reflecting the history and pointing out the Adagio ' s associations with mourning, nostalgia, love and passion, qualified as "sentimental Romanticism", he writes about the choral setting: "Barber brought to the surface the work's sense of spirituality. Agnus Dei is in B-flat minor , marked "molto adagio " very slow and "molto espressivo " very expressive and in the beginning "pp" pianissimo , very soft. The music is set for soprano , alto , tenor and bass SATB ; all four parts are sometimes divided; measures 12 to 14 call for a solo soprano. Soprano and alto are divided in two parts, tenor and bass occasionally even in three. The music is dominated by a melody, first presented by the soprano, which begins on a long note and then undulates in even rhythm and diatonic steps, a melisma of two measures on the words "Agnus Dei".
