This is one of the most modern hymns we’ve run. Written by Polish singer, composer, and conducter Paweł Bębenek, the hymn premeired in 1990. Bębenek deals mostly in the musical tradition of the Church and has worked with many of the most prominent figures in early and liturgical music.

This recording was released by the liturgical ensemble of the Basilica of the Holy Trinity, in 2016. The choir has a wide range and blend their voices together excellently. The chant sections are especially moving.
