description: This setting of the escatological text from the prophet Micah uses melodic material based on the traditional Jewish cantillation of that text. The language is remeniscent of Copland's "In the Beginning," ranging from unison passages to 2-part counterpoint, shifting triadic harmonies, extended chords and a brilliant ending in C-major.
