About The Saints of the Lord:
The Saints of the Lord (2009) is a musical setting based on the Offertory Antiphon for All Saints Day, taking its Refrain from Sirach 15:6 and its Verses from Psalm 5. That said, this piece could be used in a variety of situations that call for a hymn about hope in the Lord's promise that those who strive after holiness will indeed have "joy and happiness." Therefore, it may be found appropriate for funerals, weddings, celebrations of the feast days of various saints or the lives other holy or virtuous people, etc.
