Description Inspired by John Joubert's famous setting of this text, Margaret Burk’s setting begins with an ornamented melody sung over wordless harmonies. Although primarily homophonic, a reasonable amount of divisi throughout makes this a choice primarily for a medium or larger choir.
Trinity Cathedral Choir, Portland, Oregon
Anthem text There is no rose of such virtue
As is the rose that bare Jesu:
For in this rose contained was
heaven and earth in little space:
By that rose we may well see
that he is God in persons three:
Then leave we all in this worldly mirth
and follow we this joyful birth:
–English traditional, ca. 1420
