Inspired by Psalm 133, composer Michael John Trotta has written a lovely a cappella piece that celebrates the unity of brotherhood among all people. This calm, sonorous work is the perfect choice for a concert finale, signature piece, encore, or worship benediction.
The piece features a straightforward declamation of the text with close harmonies with an optional soprano solo on the second verse. The chorus features an more expansive melody in the soprano section. A brief contrasting section in the relative minor is reserved for the delivery of the text (Acts 17) “From one is made every nation.” The piece closes with a reiteration of the central message in the home key.
