Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est.
Where there is charity and love, God is there
The love of Christ has gathered us together,
Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
Let us revere and love the living God
And with a sincere heart let us love one another.
Traditional Latin text
SATB (div) a cappella

A distinctly different setting of this much-loved text; written for the Twin Cities-based ensemble Caritas, the warm, intimate musical treatment is meant to reflect the character of the ensemble itself. The music made by a small group of singers is itself an incarnation of the Divine.
