Et Civitas for SATB by Marco Galvani.
A reflective piece, this setting is appropriate for amateur choirs and professional ensembles alike.
Et civitas non eget sole neque luna ut luceant in ea nam claritas Dei inluminavit eam et lucerna eius est agnus Et ambulant gentes per lumen eius et reges terrae adferent gloriam suam et honorem in illam Et portae eius non cludentur per diem nox enim non erit illic Et adferent gloriam et honorem gentium in illam Nec intrabit in ea aliquid coinquinatum et faciens abominationem et mendacium nisi qui scripti sunt in libro vitae agni
The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp. The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring splendor into it. On no day will its gates ever be shut, for there will be no night there. The glory and honour of the nations will be brought into it. Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life.
