O Burning Mountain, O Chosen Sun
composer: Tim Knight
text: Mechthild of Magdeburg
This piece, suitable for smaller choirs, comes from a set of eight ancient Celtic prayers. These were designed for use as introits at various times of year. A piano, rather than organ, was chosen to accompany this choral setting to accommodate smaller choirs' performance. Tim Knight has chosen this seldom used text in order to add variety to the choices available for matching music to liturgical needs.
