Using the Latin words of the very familiar verse in 1 Corinthians ("Behold, I tell you a mystery¬Ö"), this short very reflective SATB anthem is suitable for funerals, memorial services, All Souls and even Easter Eve. The biggest stretch in any part is a few middle Ds for the basses, but they do have an optional bottom D to end. Other than that, very accessible. Not technically concordant throughout, but it definitely does not sound discordant. Recording is with thanks to the Thanet Chamber Choir.
