The combination of the traditional Portuguese poem which expresses the longing to see Mary in heaven and Blok-Wilson’s original composition provides a compelling and meaningful addition to choral performance programs.
Its prayerful and uplifting nature makes it suitable for moments of reflection, introspection,
or as part of a larger narrative within the concert program.
The piece was commissioned by the St Patrick’s Regional High School touring choir for their summer tour to Portugal July, 2023.
Here is a beautiful recording of one of their amazing performances.
