Holy One, Source of Radiance and Reason

A canonic invocation of the holy, in all its beauty and complexity
Poet/Lyricist: 
Rob Eller-Isaacs
Commissioned by Bethlehem Academy (Faribault, MN)

Rev. Rob Eller-Isaacs' prayerful invocation describes a holy presence that is vast and complex, moving through both mind and spirit, and encompassing the totality of existence.

It's only fitting that this musical setting of Eller-Isaac's words takes the form of an expansive, arching canon. This flexibly-voiced edition contains both the basic 2-5 part canon, as well as an SATB anthem arrangement of the canon.

Holy One, Source of Radiance and Reason is the the final movement of the larger work, Pure Light Beyond Light.
