This brief choral work is a setting of the traditional “Benedictus” text from the ordinary of the mass (“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.”).

It is largely homophonic (with no divisi) and as such is one of Rosner’s easiest choral works, highly suitable for either amateur or professional ensembles.
