for soprano solo or semi-chorus, and SATB unaccompanied Eleanor Daley sets the text from Corinthians, 'Love is patient, Love is kind' as a descant above a repeated, polyphonic, and homophonic SATB chant of the Latin text Ubi caritas et amor Deus ibi est. The setting is very accessible and multi-dimensional. Its theme is suitable all year round and especially for weddings.
Eleanor Daley was born in 1955 in Ontario, Canada. A prolific composer with a remarkable gift for melody, she has well over eighty published choral compositions and is commissioned extensively throughout North America.
