Three Sayings is a setting of three well known texts (including All Shall Be Well) from the book The Revelations of Divine Love (1395) written by the anchoress and Christian mystic Julian of Norwich. Scored for high voices (SSA) and organ, with occasional solos and divisions for the singers, the setting's tripartite structure takes the listener through emotions of veneration, tenderness, joy and humility, as it follows the emotive content of the three texts.
