I Wonder as I Wander
For SATB chorus

Leonard Enns
Leonard Enns
Composition Date: 2012
Duration: 00:04:25


Instrumentation Set Number 1:
  • 1 x Mixed chorus
Programme Note:
I wanted to respect the beauty of this lovely melody, so it is presented directly in the first and the last verses, while it is “developed” slightly in the second verse (“When Mary birthed Jesus…”). As with a floral arrangement, this beautiful melody is surrounded by a kind of choral greenery, created through repeated statements of the word “wonder”. And, almost as in the process of meditation, the meaning of “wonder” matures from initial pondering wonder to amazing wonder at the climax of the arrangement (“…or all of God’s angels in heaven for the sing…”) The music returns finally to a quiet wonder, which is both question and admiration by the end of the journey.
