Program Notes

This breathtaking work for SATB choir and wind ensemble quotes from the writings of St. Catherine of Siena: "You are an ever-burning fire; you are a fire which drives away all coldness and illumines minds with its light, and with this light you have made known your truth."

- Program Note from publisher

Caterina di Jacopo di Benincasa (25 March 1347 – 29 April 1380), known as Catherine of Siena, was an Italian mystic and pious laywoman who engaged in papal and Italian politics through extensive letter-writing and advocacy. Canonized in 1461, she is revered as a saint and as a Doctor of the Church due to her extensive theological authorship. She is also considered to have influenced Italian literature.
